What’s in EMS for you?
If you have booked a room in the Student Center or worked with Victor Cohen at the Mitchell Center, Moulton Tower, or Faculty Club you have experienced EMS. EMS has three high-level benefits:
Better coordination of events
Through the EMS reporting function, we can run a series of reports to inform key on-campus personnel when we will experience a high-event season. This information will allow us proactively to inform the University community of potential challenges, like difficulty finding parking, as a result of an event. Moreover, you will have a comprehensive understanding of what is happening on campus at all times and which weeks/days to avoid when planning an event. Finally, our EMS system will highlight holidays and other activities that you may want to consider when scheduling an activity.
Proactive use of our resources
Our dynamic Campus Police force is at times unaware when events requiring their services are scheduled. Our EMS system will allow Campus Police to run daily, weekly, and other reports to ensure that we are properly resourced to maintain a safe and secure University environment.
Our EMS system directly populates our new Master Special Events Calendar which will allow external and internal users to sort events by their areas of interest.
As an EMS user, you are committed to USA’s continued growth and improvement. Specifically, your use of this system indicates your belief that USA is a place that should:
- Better coordinate campus-wide events
- Provide Campus Police with reliable information to ensure campus safety
- Showcase our brand to USA and the larger Mobile community
