Hurricane Irene Update

As Hurricane Irene continues to travel north along the Eastern Seaboard the university’s Emergency Operations Group continues to closely monitor the storm’s progress and assess its potential impact on our campus community. Preparations are fully underway to enhance our capacity to address the storm’s impact.
 
We are beginning to receive questions regarding classes or the status of university operations and events on Monday. A decision will most likely be made either tonight or on Saturday. All campus events from Sunday noon to Sunday midnight have already been canceled.
 
Following are all the communications vehicles that will be used to announce the decision. Please monitor these vehicles until a decision is made but before weather conditions deteriorate on Sunday.
