Confirm or Update Your Emergency Information on myUM—and Watch Out for Loose Gators

With the fall semester, hurricane season, and National Campus Safety Awareness Month underway, now is a good time to confirm and update your personal, emergency contact, and work address information, which the Emergency Notification Network (ENN) uses to disseminate voice and text messages in the event of an emergency. It’s quick and easy. Just sign on to myUM and under “Personal & Biographical Info” on the right, click “Personal, Address and Emergency/Evacuation Information” and verify or update the required information. For a light but informative look at how the ENN works, view this video, but beware. There was a gator running loose on campus.
