FYI Stories

STAR open house

All University of Delaware staff and faculty are invited to attend an open house at the Health Sciences Complex on the STAR Campus from 4-6 p.m., Wednesday, April 16.

For your protection

UD Police remind members of the campus community to secure their property and not to leaving belongings unattended.

News also will be available through the UD telephone information line at 302-831-2000.

Information also will be shared with the state Department of Education's School Closings and Delays website

Members of the campus community should not call UD Police so that telephone lines there can remain open for emergency calls.

UD Policy

The University Policy and Procedures Manual includes a section dealing with personal safety considerations for faculty and students. Please note the policy, which is reprinted here:

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.
