Efforts will be made to avoid a general closing of the University during snowstorms. However, there may be times when extreme snow or ice conditions force cancellation of classes, and a general closing of the University.

  1. School closure will be declared by the Provost and Senior Executive Vice President or appointee, who in turn will notify the senior administration.
  2. Notification will be made to the campus community.
  3. Essential personnel may be expected to work through their normal duty hours or as instructed.

The University community can keep appraised of the situation through these addition sources.
