SD School for the Blind & Visually Impaired - Campus Alert
The Campus Alert system is an emergency notification tool for the public universities, special schools, and higher education centers governed by the South Dakota Board of Regents. This includes Black Hills State University, Capital University Center, Dakota State University, Northern State University, South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, South Dakota School for the Deaf, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, South Dakota State University, University Center, University of South Dakota, and Higher Education Center-West River.
This system helps us notify staff of any emergencies that occur on or near campus locations. Emergencies may include, but not be limited to, weather alerts, school closings, fire, or criminal activity.
All staff are automatically included in this alert system with their campus-assigned email address. An email is sent to the campus-assigned email account with information about how to register for the alert system. Staff are required to register and add any campus-provided phone numbers (desk, cellular). Inclusion of personal contact information such as home telephone or personal cellular phone is encouraged, but not required.
If you receive registration emails from more than one campus, you only need to register once. You will continue to receive this notification monthly if you have not registered and are active in the Campus Alert System. To receive a registration e-mail outside of the automated cycle, please contact the SDSBVI Technology Specialist.
The Campus Alert system will help keep our campuses safe and ensure that everyone is notified when an emergency does occur. We thank you for participating and cooperating in this important effort!
