HAWK ALERT: This is a test of the Hawk Alert system. No emergency actions are necessary. This is only a test. Faculty, staff, and students can manage the methods by which they receive Hawk Alerts. Because alerts can be delivered most effectively via text message, users are encouraged to enter their mobile numbers and select the text message option in their preferences. Email alerts are sent to everyone. To make sure you are subscribed, or to change the delivery options, follow these five steps: Log in to MyUI (students) or Employee Self Service (faculty and staff). Navigate to the Hawk Alert contact information links, or follow the direct links available on the Hawk Alert website. Review the Hawk Alert contact information listed for you. Make the appropriate additions or changes using the input boxes and drop-down menus. Click the "Update Hawk Alert Contact Information" bar at the bottom of the page to save your changes. If no changes are necessary, simply log out. For assistance, see the Hawk Alert page, or contact the ITS Help Desk at 319-384-HELP (4357) or its-helpdesk@uiowa.edu.
