As we are potentially expecting some interesting weather tomorrow, here is information about the university’s procedures on inclement weather and closures:

“4.03 The University may close for the morning, afternoon, or evening, or for the entire day. In each case, the closure announcement will communicate the reopening time, which may be revised in the event of ongoing severe weather.

Communication, Public Affairs, and Marketing (CPAM) will communicate the university’s decision based on established protocol, including local radio stations, Twitter, and the web.
