Classes online, essential operations only Thursday after 2 p.m.
February 17, 2022 12:46 PM

Dear Students, Staff and Faculty,

With potentially dangerous levels of snow, wind and ice in the forecast, the university will move to online classes and essential operations for Thursday afternoon beginning at 2:00 p.m. Subject to operational needs, non-essential employees are permitted to leave campus at that time and complete the workday remotely or without use of personal benefit time. Instructors who are not able to move their classes online should cancel class or provide alternative educational experiences available to students. We are asking instructors to make any cancellation decisions in consultation with their unit executive officers. Midterm exams held this afternoon or evening should also have an option for a conflict exam should any students not be able to attend.

Decisions about cancellation or rescheduling of previously scheduled events will be made by the sponsoring organization or venue. You should check directly with the sponsor before attending any event this evening.

We expect that in-person classes will resume tomorrow (Friday) morning.

Please check your email and university social channels frequently this afternoon and evening for any additional updates.

Until the potentially dangerous weather situation has cleared, please let health and safety considerations – both your own and others – guide your decisions and actions.


Robert J. Jones
