The safety and security of students, faculty, staff and visitors at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is paramount. We continue to enhance our systems to provide an integrated approach to emergency management and communication.
The most recent tool at our disposal is the Pointer Alerts communication system. Pointer Alerts allows us to communicate emergency information with more than 11,000 people in a very short period of time. It includes cellphone text messages, email notifications and campus computer pop-up alerts to all students, faculty and staff members plus residential hall intercoms.
