Important information about UMW Alerts

The following message is from the UMW Office of Emergency Management and Safety.

UMW subscribes to an emergency notification provider, RAVE Safety Mobility, for official emergency and inclement weather noticesToday, all new incoming students and new employees will receive an important email directly from RAVE requesting that they log in to the UMW Alerts system. Please know that the University has sanctioned that email, and it is essential that you follow the instructions contained in that email.

NOTE: A new feature has been added to UMW Alerts this year. Automated Weather Alerts are now active, allowing for immediate notification of severe weather events in the area.
