UD open on normal schedule Feb. 18
5:14 a.m., Feb. 18, 2014--The University of Delaware is open and operating on its normal schedule Tuesday, Feb. 18, and officials are continuing to monitor the weather.
Members of the University community are reminded that safety is UD's highest priority. Faculty, staff and students should not put themselves at risk, and those who expect difficulty traveling should contact their supervisors.
Cold weather schedule
University Facilities staff have been at work since early this morning ensuring that parking lots and walkways are cleared.
Faculty members unable to hold class should notify their departmental offices, and students unable to attend class should contact their professors. In such cases, UD policy states that students should be allowed to make up missed class time and canceled classes should be rescheduled when possible.
The University's policy is reprinted below:
Faculty and students are not expected to take unnecessary risks to meet their teaching and learning obligations due to inclement weather. When classes have not been canceled, it is a matter of personal judgment whether traveling to campus is hazardous. Faculty should notify their departmental offices when weather precludes them from meeting their teaching obligations; similarly, students should notify their professors when inclement weather precludes them from class attendance. In such cases, students should be allowed to make up missed class time and, whenever possible, canceled classes should be rescheduled.
