NPForward text notification system: How it will be used, and how to manage your preferences

The College has begun using the new text notification system, NPForward to help keep our community informed regarding fall 2020 reopening and related issues. We initially informed the campus about this new system on July 22, 2020.

We have heard from members of the campus community that email communication can be overwhelming at times, and that important institutional messages sometimes get lost in the large volume of email people receive daily.

We hope you’ll find this new NPForward text notification system user-friendly and helpful in staying connected to the College’s many happenings in real time.

Those who prefer not to receive NPForward text notifications, or who would like to add additional mobile numbers to receive these notifications, can manage their preferences in by clicking the “NPAlert & NPForward link” under “Resources.”

NPAlert, the College’s emergency text alert service, will not be affected by the introduction of this new system. NPAlert will continue to be used exclusively to deliver timely, emergency announcements to our entire campus community. Students and employees may not opt out of receiving these notifications.
