Subscribe to Bulldog Emergency Alerts
By default, all faculty, staff and students are automatically enrolled to receive emergency alerts based on your AAMU email and primary number provided in Self-Service Banner. The Higher Education Opportunity Act (Public Law 110 315) requires institutions to inform their respective campuses of conditions posing a threat to life, safety, and security so that members of the community can take necessary precautions to protect themselves.
You will need to maintain this information by logging into Self-Service Banner and updating your personal information.
Updating Personal Information for Emergency Alerts
Students, Faculty and Staff will be able to update their personal information via Self-Service Banner using the steps below:
1. Log into Self-Service Banner
2. Select the “Personal Information” tab
3. Update address, phone, and email address
