New Technology Enhances Safety

In an effort to extend its ability to protect its students, faculty, staff and visitors, Wittenberg has launched a new text messaging alert system. Partnering with e2Campus, administrators can now access a system, which will simultaneously distribute text messages to cell phones and update the university’s Web site.

“E-mail and voicemail can only reach so many people in a short amount of time,” said Associate Vice President for Human Resources and Special Assistant to the President Maureen Massaro. “We wanted to ensure that we were using any and all avenues to communicate with our campus in the event of an emergency situation.”

Wittenberg’s new text-messaging system and its implementation on a college campus recently made national headlines.

“The events at Virginia Tech last spring made all of us in higher education review our efforts at preventing such a tragedy,” said Carl Loney, Wittenberg chief of police and security. “Having this new form of communication available is just one more way for us to protect the campus.”
