Austin Peay State University utilizes an emergency notification system, RAVE Alert, to communicate official information during an emergency or crisis situation that disrupts normal campus operations or threatens the health or safety of members of the campus community.
All Austin Peay State University students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to register for the RAVE Alert with their official university e-mail address. We encourage students, staff, and faculty to add other contact information, such as mobile, to their APSU Alert accounts. Parents, media, visitors, and other interested parties may register for RAVE Alert on a voluntary self-subscription basis.
RAVE Alert uses the following methods to send immediate notifications:
- Text Messages—sent to phone numbers that have been entered by the individual user.
- Email—to all apsu.edu email addresses.
RAVE Alert is designed for use only when an incident disrupts normal campus operations or threatens the immediate health and safety of the campus community. Other forms of communication that APSU may use to broadcast messages are:
- University website
- Local news outlets
Effective emergency response requires personal preparedness and planning. We encourage you to edit your RAVE Alert account to include multiple forms of notification as just one part of your personal emergency action plan.
