Effective immediately, current CU Boulder employees can elect to receive certain emergency and campus closure messages in Spanish, Chinese (simplified and traditional) and Hindi, making it easier for native speakers and readers of these languages to process crucial information quickly, without having to translate it.
Other languages are being reviewed for compatibility with the university’s emergency notification system, RAVE Mobile Safety, and will be considered for addition in the future.
The ability to select a preferred language will only apply to the highest level of notification, CU Emergency Alerts, sent via text and email, and will not apply to CU Safety Alerts or CU Advisories. Information on the university’s three notification levels is below.
Employees who wish to select a language other than English for which to receive alerts can simply change their language preferences in MyCUInfo. Employees can ask their departments’ human resources representatives for assistance with the selection process, if needed.
