Emergency Notification System




Alerts for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Sarah Lawrence College uses Rave Mobile Safety for its emergency notification system. Rave is one of the largest and most respected providers of emergency alert systems to colleges throughout the United States. Rave Mobile Safety is able to deliver messages to your Sarah Lawrence e-mail address and your cell phone.

All students, staff, and faculty are automatically placed into the system (provided that Information Technology Services has your cell phone number) and do not need to manually input their data.

Please e-mail Matthew Brewster, Associate Director of Campus Safety, at mbrewster@sarahlawrence.edu if any of the following apply to you:

  • You want to opt out of the system
  • You are presently not in the system, but would like to join
  • You would like to change any of your data in the system
