‘Ville Notice January 30, 2019

’Ville Notice | January 30, 2019

ALERTS FOR MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS

This afternoon and through the evening, an extremely cold weather system will move across Lancaster County and Millersville. Temperatures by midnight could be near zero, and by the morning commute hours on Thursday, the temperature could reach -5 F.  In addition it will be very windy which will make it feel even colder.

 

All students, faculty, staff and visitors to our campus should prepare for these extreme cold weather conditions. Remain indoors as much as possible.  When outside dress warmly, in layers, with a good winter coat.  Wear a hat, gloves and scarf to keep exposed areas of the body covered and protected. Use appropriate footwear that protects your feet from the cold and that provides traction.

Sidewalks, parking lots and other campus grounds will experience “thaw and freeze” conditions. Water from melting snow and ice today will refreeze quickly as the temperatures drop.  Ice melt will not be effective at temperatures as cold as those we are about to experience. Our facilities crews will do all they can to treat these surfaces, but icy spots will remain. Use extra caution when walking around campus. Be attentive to icy spots and avoid them and/or stick to surfaces coated with anti-skid material and ice melt to provide better traction.

Get the latest forecast from Millersville University’s Weather Information Center – http://www.atmos.millersville.edu/~wic/.

’Ville Bulletin | January 29, 2019

ALERTS FOR MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS

Due to snow, Millersville University will be closing at 2 p.m. today, Jan. 29, 2019.

All afternoon and evening classes, both on the main campus and at the Ware Center, are cancelled. On-campus facilities for residential students, including dining, will remain open as usual.

Millersville University is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. Please be careful when driving/walking.

Our policy on delays and cancellations can be found here: https://www.millersville.edu/delays.php.

’Ville Bulletin | January 18, 2019

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.

Please also see our policy on delays and cancellations found here https://www.millersville.edu/delays.php.

Spam/Phishing Email

This semester we have seen an increased number of phishing emails attacking our campus. A phishing email attempts to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity using bulk email, which tries to evade spam filters.

Here are some tips to help keep you and our campus information more secure:

  • Use a strong password.
  • Verify the sender address.
  • Hover mouse over links in message to see if the link is to a different website than the one displayed.
  • Never give out personal information.

The Social Engineering Red Flags document has further information on phishing emails.  Please watch your inbox for a reminder of ongoing cyber security awareness training opportunities for MU faculty and staff.

Millersville University’s Department of IT will never ask for your password.

For questions and concerns, please contact the Help Desk at 717-871-7777 or help.desk@millersville.edu.
