The Lander Alert System has been adopted by Lander University in order to quickly notify students, faculty, and staff via SMS text messaging and email in the event there is an imminent campus emergency. Although this system is optional, all students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to register. By registering you will automatically be sent critical alerts, notifying you of dangerous incidents of a threatening nature. You may also opt in for other alerts.

Please Register - it only takes a minute! To sign-up for the Lander Alert System, simply log into the MyLander Campus Portal. Once logged into MyLander, follow the Sign Up Now link located in the Lander Alert channel box on the home tab.  

If you have trouble signing up for Lander Alert, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 864-388-8234.

Please note - Lander does not charge to use this service; however, depending on your personal cell phone plan, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages. Also, students may enter a mobile phone number and/or email address for a parent so they receive the same Lander Alert message as the student in the event of an emergency .
