Dear campus community,

Our region is experiencing dangerously hot conditions with high temperatures above 100 degrees.  An excessive heat warning remains in effect until 9 p.m. Monday.

Campus will remain open to accommodate students and employees who are scheduled to work on campus.  We are encouraging all employees who can work remotely, to do so.

If you are expected on campus tomorrow, please check with your supervisor for further instructions and/or alternatives.

To accommodate students, faculty and staff who do not have access to air conditioned spaces at home, we are extending card access to the Anderson University Center and Morken Center for Learning and Technology on Monday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.  With limited resources on campus, we ask that you not hold doors open for others to enter; entry is limited to students, faculty and staff and their immediate family members.  There are water filling stations and seating in both facilities, but no additional resources are available and no staff will be available for assistance in either building after 5 p.m.

Summer term classes will proceed as scheduled, as most are being offered remotely. For those faculty meeting on campus, please finalize your plans accordingly and notify students immediately of any changes.

208 Garfield will close at 4 p.m. today and will not be open on Monday, June 28.  All other campus restaurants were previously scheduled to be closed.

If you are on campus, please limit outdoor activities and stay hydrated.
