Emergency Notification System

Colorado Mesa University has contracted with an emergency notification provider to send alert messages in the event of an emergency situation. While the university encourages you to participate in the emergency notification system, opting to receive these emergency notifications is completely voluntary and only one of the ways the university will attempt to alert the campus community to an emergency event.

Alert Channels

In the case of an emergency, students, faculty and staff will be notified through one or more of the following channels:

  • Text Message
  • Voice Message
  • Colorado Mesa University Email
  • MAVzone
  • CMU Website
  • CMU's Twitter Feed

Sign Up to Receive Text and Voice Message Alerts

The contact information you provide for the notification system will not be sold or released to any other party. The university intends to only use the provided contact information to alert the campus community of emergency situations or an event that directly poses a life-safety risk to the campus community. In addition, the emergency notification system will be tested once per term, not to exceed three times per calendar year.

Colorado Mesa University does not warrant the successful delivery of each message to each individual recipient. The service depends on the individual cellular and mobile phone carriers to deliver Simple Messaging System or SMS/text messaging to each recipient. There may be a charge by your cell phone provider to receive text messages.

If you have not signed up to receive alerts and would like to, please take the following steps:

  1. Log in to MAVzone.
  2. On the Home tab scroll down to the channel titled "Emergency Warning System".
  3. Click on the "Colorado Mesa University Emergency Warning System Contact Information" link.
  4. Update your contact information.
  5. Click the "Opt-in/Info Correct" button to complete your registration.
