Students can sign up by entering the number for their text-capable cell phone when prompted during the Ursa and BearMail account activation process, or by logging in to Ursa, clicking on the Student tab and entering the number for their text-capable cell phone in the UNC Emergency Alert box.
Faculty and staff should log on to Ursa and click the “Employee” tab. Find the Emergency Alert channel, enter your cell phone number and click the update button. A “Changes Saved” message will appear at the bottom of the channel to indicate your sign-up is complete. Phone numbers can be changed using the same procedure.
