Update Your Emergency Contact Information

When an emergency happens at work, it is important that the University has emergency contact information on file for each employee.  Our system of record for this information is MyHR. The emergency contact information stored in this system is only accessible by Human Resources staff and will only be used in the case of an emergency, such as a personal health crisis or other concern for an employee’s safety and well-being.  All employees are encouraged to have at least one emergency contact on file. To update your emergency contact information, please take the following steps:

  • Log into MyHR
  • Click the icon for “Personal Information”
  • Click the “Edit” button on the top right side of the screen
  • Click “Contacts” on the left side of the screen
  • Click “Contacts+”
