Severe Weather Policy for Extended Campus Centers

In the event of severe weather or other community alert situations that may impact the ability of students, faculty, or staff to reach our centers, the following policies and resources will be used to determine and communicate any closures.

Faculty who are hampered by severe weather and cannot make it to Colorado Springs should contact Ann O'Connor (ann.oconnor@unco.edu) AND your Program Coordinator. If a calling tree is used to communicate information to your class, you should then activate your tree.

Timing of Closure Decisions

Ensuring the safety of our students and staff could mean closure decisions happen at any time. When possible, day closures will be announced by 7:00 a.m. and evening closures will be announced by 3:00 p.m.
