MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The question is – how effective are text alerts at letting students and staff at universities know about a potential threat?

Only 3 of the University of Wisconsin System’s 13 four-year campuses have more than half signed up to get the text alerts. Those universities are in Platteville, Stevens Point and Parkside.

Overall, about 32 percent of the people on System campuses are taking part.

So far, that participation isn’t mandatory, but some are pushing to make it so. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater has no text alert system.
