Official University closings

| No Comments

After our near recording-breaking temperatures last week, it seems like a good time to revisit the University's policy on official closings. As a general practice, the University does not close unless the health, safety, and security of University personnel and students is seriously brought into question. When this does happen, either because of severe weather conditions or other emergencies, the Executive Vice President and Provost initiates appropriate action. You can check out additional information about this policy in the ASR employee handbook.
