Weather Emergency

Occasionally inclement weather necessitates cancellation of classes and/or campus activities. The decision to cancel or delay classes or scheduled university activities, and alter the daily work schedule because of a weather event will be by the Vice President for Finance and Administration and the Academic Dean in consultation with the Associate Vice President for Business Services, the Associate Academic Dean, and the director of Security Services. When classes are not in session, the Associate Vice President for Business Services or the director of Security Services will recommend changes, if any, to the Vice President for Finance and Administration. The Associate Academic Dean will be notified of these changes. The decision will be governed by concern for the safety of university faculty, staff, and students and the ability to perform educational tasks effectively. Decisions will also be based on and will consider the nature and degree of each inclement weather event, whether classes are in session, and events on the university master calendar. It is important that faculty, staff, and students scheduling events list those events on the university master calendar in order that impact of schedule changes or cancellations can be considered and communicated appropriately.

Please recognize that the university must responsibly continue to operate when adverse conditions do not warrant a change in daily activities.
