About Panther Alerts
Panther Alert is a mass notification system that enables University students, faculty and staff to receive alerts and updates as text messages on cell phones. Participation by the University community is voluntary. It is powered by Omnilert Network e2Campus. No advertisements or non-emergency alerts will be sent to the registered phones. Your information is not shared with or sold to third parties.
You must sign up for the service in order to receive alerts. Since this is a voluntary service, you may choose to opt-in or opt-out of the service at any time. You are responsible for any text messaging charges from your wireless service provider.
