YPSILANTI -- Due to the extreme weather conditions, Eastern Michigan University is canceling all evening classes -- those beginning at 5 p.m. or later -- on Wednesday, Dec. 13. This includes all planned campus activities, lectures and events.
The University will be open as scheduled on Thursday, Dec. 14, for regular business and classes.
Due to the 24/7 nature of some campus operations, certain designated personnel such as heating plant, physical plant, food service, public safety, WEMU and other employees within specific areas of the University may be required to work. Employees who are required to work will be notified by their supervisors.
All other employees should remain at home in accordance with the Eastern Michigan University Weather Policy and applicable collective bargaining agreement at http://www.emich.edu/hr/employeerelations/contracts.php. During the period of closure, all employees are expected to check the University closure website and other media sources to receive updates regarding the closure and reopening of campus.
Final exams scheduled for this evening are being rescheduled to Friday evening, however some instructors may have alternate plans and students should contact their instructor directly.
Residence halls and apartments will remain open. Campus dining/food service will be available at The Commons, Eastern Eateries and CrossRoads MarketPlace.
University leaders are closely monitoring the situation and will communicate additional information as warranted. Students, faculty and staff should monitor their emich.edu email and www.emich.edu for further updates.
