In an ongoing effort to promote the school's communication, The Institute of World Politics has implemented a new emergency notification system.
The new system, Rave Alert, will send emergency notifications to students, faculty, and staff via their IWP emails. Users can control what other ways they would like to receive messages, for instance, through Facebook, twitter, text, personal emails etc. This system will be used to notify students of class cancellations and office closures, as well as emergency situations.
"This new system will help ensure the safety of our students, and keep everyone well informed," says Michael Webber, Operations Manager at IWP.
The new system officially launched on October 29, 2013. Students can sign in and change preferences using the email they received from Rave.
