Only the President, (or in the President’s absence, his/her designee, generally the Provost or Vice President for Finance and Administration), has the authority to cancel classes in the event of an emergency situation. The University maintains its teaching schedules in accordance with established schedules and operational demands. To this end, closing campus will be avoided except under the most extreme circumstances.

Procedures during severe weather:

The University recognizes that severe weather may affect an employee's ability to travel to and from work. Employees should use discretion in attempting to travel when road conditions are poor. In the case of a campus closure, employees will be released from work, except for those designated as essential staff who are necessary to maintain critical operations of the University. For more detailed information about emergency closures, please see the employee handbook (section 602).

Announcements regarding cancellation:

All announcements pertaining to cancellations at the Fayette campus will be released via the Marketing Communications Office. If classes are cancelled, the decision will be posted on the CMU website, appropriate official social media, and communicated through the local television and radio stations listed below. An Eagle Alert will also be sent out.
