SUNY Canton has reopened enrollment in the New York Alert emergency notification system for the Fall 2009 semester.
The New York Alert system allows college officials to rapidly send out notifications to students, faculty, and staff through phone calls, email, and text message. If there is an emergency on campus, the college will be using this system as a primary means to relay information and instructions. By enrolling, everyone associated with the college can choose the method of alert that best suits their individual needs.
“We broadcast the alerts in a way that is convenient and accessible,” SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “By using multiple notification systems, we will inform as many people as possible if there is an emergency on campus.”
The NY Alert program is completely voluntary for students, faculty, and staff. Members who want to receive the alert messages and instructions can sign up via SUNY Canton’s UCanWeb application.
Go there now by clicking http://banweb.canton.edu. You will be prompted to enroll, decline, or edit contact information upon the first log in. For more details and precise instructions on how to use the registration form in UCanWeb, please visit: http://www.canton.edu/nyalert/.
The State University of New York and SUNY Canton value your privacy. Your information is confidential within the NY-Alert System. The system is completely voluntary but strongly encouraged. Registrants can change their enrollment status at any time by logging into UCanWeb. SUNY Canton joined the SUNY NY-Alert System as part of the statewide emergency notification initiative.
SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 100 courses online each semester. The College’s athletic teams belong to the NAIA’s Sunrise Conference, enabling students to compete in their respective sports for four years. Construction is now underway for the College’s new Convocation, Athletic, and Recreation Center.
