ALERTS FOR MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS
With the forecast for snow, ice and sleet this weekend, it’s a good time to remind the University Community about our policy on delays and cancellations.
Millersville University is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.
In the event of inclement weather or other unusual conditions, Millersville University may either close or announce a delay. At approximately 5:30 a.m., the Vice President for Finance and Administration begins the process of gathering information in order to consult with the President and Provost on a decision based on the latest weather forecast from our meteorologist. Several factors are considered before a decision is made to delay or cancel classes. Consultation occurs with the Millersville University Police and Facilities personnel on the status of accessibility to walking paths and parking lots.
Since a large percentage of our students reside in the residence halls or live close to campus in Millersville, we make every effort to keep the campus open and to teach classes. The Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs has emphasized to the faculty that commuting students who are unable to make it to class due to inclement weather and severe driving conditions will not be penalized. In all cases of inclement weather and severe driving conditions, faculty, staff and students should exercise due caution and make the final determination as to whether they feel it is safe to commute in these circumstances.
