The iAlert system serves as Washburn University’s primary method of communication during a campus emergency or special situation. iAlert technology enables Washburn to send voice, e-mail and text messages to staff, faculty, students and other contacts, such as parents and spouses, to telephone numbers you designate. Both a voice message and a text message will be sent to your designated cell phone numbers. A voice mail message will be left if there is no answer. A voice message will be sent to landline telephone numbers. A voice mail message will be left if there is no answer. An e-mail will be automatically sent to your washburn.edu account.
