Sign up for Alerts

In the event of a campus emergency that could affect the health and safety of students, employees and the community, the University will immediately activate an emergency mass notification system.


Students should sign up for alerts through myZou.

Additionally, if you are a student employee, you must also sign up through myHR to make sure you receive alerts.

Faculty & Staff

All faculty & staff can update their personal information and sign up for emergency alerts through myHR.

General public

Parents, community members and others who do not have an account with the university can sign up for alerts in two ways.

If you need to make changes to other personal information such as name or title, contact your departmental human resources liaison. If you experience any problems while using this application, please contact the IT Help Desk at 573-882-5000 or visit the IT KnowledgeBase at

When the University initiates an emergency message, we will automatically call your cell phone with a voice message, send a text message to your cell phone, and send an e-mail message to your University e-mail account (in that order). If you respond affirmatively that you have received the message, the call sequence will cease.

Enrollment in this program is free. Your cell phone carrier may charge you for a text message if you do not have a plan that covers it; consult your carrier to confirm. The University will not use this contact information except in an emergency that has the potential to affect your health and safety.
