In a campus emergency, what should you do? How can you stay informed?
Palm Beach State College uses Blackboard Connect to communicate with students and employees in an emergency. All employees and students will automatically receive emergency messages via:
- text messages on mobile devices
- audio messages on cell phones and/or home phones the College has on file
You will remain in this system unless you opt out.
We strongly encourage you to log in to PantherWeb to ensure that the contact information on file for you is correct. Please also ensure that the phone numbers on file correspond with the phone number type, i.e., put the cell phone in the cell phone box. After login, click on profile on the top right and click on change contact info.
We strongly encourage you to go to the Employee Web to ensure that the contact information on file for you is correct.
