In the event of a serious public safety emergency, the BlackBoard Connect system allows us to reach members of the community via voice messages, e-mails, and text messages. This service is part of Wellesley College's overall emergency preparedness efforts.
Test of the BlackBoard Connect Emergency Notification System
A campus-wide test of the notification system will take place once each semester.
Caller ID for phone messages is (781) 283-2121.
The confirmation message will state the following:
WCALERT: You are now confirmed to receive alerts from us. More info text reply "HELP" or "STOP WCALERT" to opt-out.
STUDENTS - contact the Registrar's Office
EMPLOYEES (FACULTY, ADMINISTRATIVE AND UNION STAFF) - contact the Help Desk.
No. You may only opt out of text messaging.
