Brown University has implemented an emergency campus alert system that can contact thousands of individuals within minutes if there is an urgent situation or crisis.
During critical events, Brown University will use the BrownAlert System to deliver advisories and instructions to students, faculty, staff and others via cell phones, land lines, wireless PDA, text pager, email and other communication devices.
All student, faculty and staff Brown email addresses have been loaded on the system, as have phone numbers for all Brown-owned landlines and cell phones.
To enable Brown to reach you in the event of a crisis, please enter your personal cell phone number on your Brown 'myAccount' page as soon as possible. You can request that the numbers remain 'private' that is, unlisted on campus directories (printed and web-based) for use only by authorized personnel for emergencies or official business. Simply select the 'private' option on your myAccount page for the relevant number.
