5.4.2 University Declared Leave (Disaster, Emergency, or Extreme Weather Conditions)

In the regular operation of every institution, it is inevitable that there will be occasions when routine operations are interrupted, and in extreme instances suspended altogether.  These occasions may be due to weather, fires, strikes, or organized student demonstrations.  In all such situations, it is important for staff, faculty, and students of the University to see that all functions and service go on insofar as possible.
In case of a disturbance, all employees and students of the University should generally report to their classes and posts of duty.  The University's basic expectation of the employee is that the employee will carry out official assigned responsibility.  This also includes student employees.  All employees and students should keep information updated in the University's Emergency Notification System and monitor all media systems for updates.
