How do I send Wayne State Alerts?

Wayne State Alerts are email and text messages sent for both emergency and non-emergency campus updates.

Wayne State employees with appropriate roles and responsibilities can use the Wayne State Broadcast Messaging service to send non-emergency Wayne State Alerts. To request access to Broadcast Messaging, please send an email to cit@wayne.eduincluding your role and intended use.

There are two ways to access the broadcast sending wizard:


  • Choose the types of messages you want to receive
  • Choose to receive communications via text message and/or email
  • Set times to pause the delivery of WSU text messages to your cell phone
  • View message history
  • Volunteer to receive test messages from WSUPD
  • Students can sign up to get messages regarding:
    • Course time or location changes
    • Final grade postings
    • Hold releases
    • Financial aid notifications

Wayne State employees can request to use Broadcast Messaging to distribute messaging to campus. Learn more at

Emergency messages are automatically sent to all students, faculty, staff, and affiliates (when appropriate) by the Wayne State University Police Department.
