Updating personal information in Wolverine Access

By | November 1, 2016

ITS worked with Public Safety and Security, Student Life, University Human Resources, and other key campus groups to release a new feature in Wolverine Access that prompts students, faculty, and staff to review and update addresses, emergency contacts, and U-M Emergency Alert preferences. The information is used to locate individuals in case of an emergency, send notifications of an emergency on or near campus, and route university mail. After a successful pilot, the Personal Data Validation screen rolled out to students on September 19, and to faculty and staff on October 3, with the following results:

  • During the week of September 19, 3,433 students updated their emergency contacts—a near 2,000% increase over the same week last year.
  • As of October 17, 43,593 students, faculty, and staff reviewed their personal information in Wolverine Access. Of those, 7,281 updated an address; 10,330 updated emergency contacts, and 3,611 updated an U-M Emergency Alert number.
  • 3,702 people enrolled in U-M Emergency Alerts for the first time.
