Intercom Alert Messages

At times your news is urgent and needs to be brought to the attention of the Ithaca College community immediately.

If your news is related to an emergency or contains time-sensitive material and if it's of major importance to the College community, you can request an Intercom alert, an HTML e-mail that goes to every student, faculty, and staff member at Ithaca College.*

You'll need approval from your vice president, the provost, or the president before the alert can be sent.

To request an alert:

  • If you haven't already submitted your story, do it now.
  • Ask your vice president to send approval for the story to be sent as an alert. The approval should include information about the story so that we can identify it among other submissions (for example, the title, who submitted it, what it's about). That approval should be sent to the Intercom editor at intercom@ithaca.edu.
  • After we receive approval from your vice president, the story will be sent as an alert to every student, faculty, and staff member at Ithaca College.*

Please note: Intercom was created in an effort to gather College news and notices in one place, as well as to reduce the large number of campuswide e-mails filling up in-boxes. The alert option should therefore be used as sparingly as possible so that legitimate alerts get the attention they deserve.

*There is an option to send an alert to students only, faculty and staff only, or all.
