Temple’s new MIR3 security alert system requires up-to-date contact information

Dear Temple Students, Faculty and Staff:

As you know, colleges and universities throughout the nation — including Temple — are implementing stronger security alert systems.


Today, I am announcing an important improvement to our alert systems, and I am asking for your help to ensure that our enhanced approach is as effective as possible.

Your safety is our utmost priority. We are committed to ensuring a safe environment for learning, living and working. Beginning today, we are implementing MIR3, a unified, multi-modal emergency communication system capable of creating and sending instantaneous notifications to students, faculty and staff using e-mail, text messages, TDD/TTY, land lines and cellular telephone calls.

In the event of an incident that potentially threatens the campus community, this new capability will be incorporated into our current use of e-mail blasts, voicemail messages, a recorded hotline and alerts on with links to relevant information.

I am asking all students to immediately log on to your OWLnet account at and make certain that you have provided the required emergency notification information, such as a cell phone number, that we can use to contact you in the event of an emergency. All faculty and staff should do the same by accessing the Employee Self Service system at and updating the emergency notification section.

We are justifiably proud of the fact that we are one of America’s safest large urban campuses, and we are well prepared to manage crisis situations. To help ensure your safety we need to know how to reach you in an emergency. Please follow the directions below to update our records.

Thank you,

Ann Weaver Hart
