Early Term Housekeeping: Don’t Forget to Sign Up for Webster Alerts & Forward Your Webster Email To A Frequently Checked Account
As an adjunct, have you ever wondered how you will find out if school is canceled due to inclement weather or another type of disruption? Your Webster.edu email address is automatically registered to receive such alerts.
In addition, you may change your contact information by adding up to three contact phone numbers and two additional email addresses. That way your loved ones can get the information as well, if you would like. Visit here for more info.
Also, as an adjunct, it is highly likely you have an email account you check more frequently than your Webster University account. If so, you can easily forward your Webster email address to the address you check most frequently. That way you won’t miss a thing. To learn more, visit here.
Finally, visit the Adjunct Resources Page at WebsterAdjunctInfo.org for information about the university and its services that are available to you as an adjunct.
