NIC launches Cardinal Contact

A new system was implemented Sept. 4 called Cardinal Contact. ALL students and employees will automatically receive emergency notification via email and the phone numbers in their MyNIC accounts; there is no need to sign up for emergency notifications. You may not “opt-out” of receiving emergency notifications, but may choose to not receive emergency messages by SMS text (do this by removing your mobile phone number from the “Cell Phone” field—leaving it blank—and add it to another field to receive voice messages).

To check your contact information, log in to MyNIC and click on the “User Account” link under the “Services” tab, then click “Contact Information.”

Phone numbers listed in the “Home Phone” and “Business” field will receive a voice message in the event of an emergency or campus closure and phone numbers listed in the “Cell Phone” field will receive a text message.
