Classes to Resume Tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec. 3)
Dear Members of the Syracuse University Community:
As reported yesterday afternoon, classes were canceled today as many of our students, faculty and staff were unable to return to campus given hazardous travel conditions. We have consulted our independent weather advisor, who has reported that the worst of this storm has passed and travel conditions have improved. Additionally, after conferring with Vice President and Chief Facilities Officer Pete Sala, roadways and walkways are in good shape and all facilities are reopened. As such, classes are scheduled as planned tomorrow.
Your safety and well-being are always our highest priority. During the fall break, we implemented several new measures that support a safe living, learning and working environment through the remainder of the fall semester and beyond. These safety enhancements were communicated in this Nov. 25 message from Chancellor Kent Syverud. We also shared a detailed summary of how we communicate about safety issues with our campus community.
The final days of any semester can be a stressful time for many in our community. To support the well-being of our students, faculty and staff, the University continues to offer enhanced resources and services.
Best wishes for a safe, healthy and successful end to the semester.
Incoming Interim Vice Chancellor and Provost
Chief Bobby Maldonado
Department of Public Safety
