Based on the latest weather forecast, the university will be closed tomorrow, January 4, 2018, for non-critical services. If you are an employee serving a critical function, please check with your supervisor regarding your work schedule. 

Staff performing critical functions in departments that are responsible for life, health, safety, and security functions for our staff, students or patients must report to work on time and as directed by their supervisors. If you have any doubt about whether you are considered a critical service provider, please contact your supervisor immediately. Clerical & Technical and Service & Maintenance staff members who work in critical functions and are directed by their supervisor to report to work will be paid time-and-one-half for hours worked. Staff members performing critical functions who are directed to work but are unable to do so will be required to use their paid time off.
