Newark campus open Thursday
March 08, 2018
UD operating on normal schedule Thursday, March 8
The University of Delaware is open and operating on its normal schedule on Thursday, March 8. Classes will meet, and offices will be open.
Members of the community are reminded to take care when traveling today. There may be patches of ice where melting snow has refrozen.
* The Wilmington Associate in Arts Program at both the Delaware Technical Community College and UD Downtown Center buildings will be opening late today, March 8. Offices will open at 10:30 a.m. and first classes will not meet until 11 a.m.
Safety is UD's highest priority. Faculty, staff and students should not put themselves at risk, and employees who expect difficulty traveling should contact their supervisors.
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.
