How Weather Decisions Are Made

submitted by

Decisions to cancel in-person classes or move classes to an alternative format during inclement weather are made in advance and in no case later than 6 a.m. for daytime classes (including weekdays and weekends) and no later than 2 p.m. for evening classes (including weeknights and weekends).

Canceling in-person classes or moving in-person classes to alternative modalities due to weather is communicated after the decision is made in as many channels as possible including emergency notification services, media outlets, the university website, and social media. Note that no communications are shared unless the university is making a change. Students, please consult the course Moodle site for more details.

As noted in the Augsburg University Employee Handbook, complete closings of the Minneapolis campus are rare because the campus is residential. Employees with questions should contact their manager to verify if they should report to work.
