The University is open today, February 7, for normal business operations and classes are being held as scheduled.
Following is information from the SMU Weather Policy:
When conditions warrant closing or delays, SMU has procedures in place to ensure that students, faculty and staff know where to go for information. As soon as a decision is made, the following steps are taken to notify the University community:
- An e-mail message will be sent to all students, faculty and staff.
- A recorded message will be available at 214-SMU-INFO (214-768-4636). Please do not call the SMU Police Department.
- Closing announcements will be posted on the SMU website, via SMU’s Twitter feed at twitter.com/smu and at facebook.com/smudallas.
The Office of News and Communications will attempt to contact the news media by 6 a.m. if day classes must be cancelled.
SMU’s goal is to maintain the normal operations and educational processes of the University while remaining sensitive to safety concerns. Therefore, if SMU remains open, faculty, students and staff should report to their classrooms or offices as usual.
However, if someone lives in an area that is affected by bad weather and feels that travel to campus would be an unreasonable safety risk, that individual should contact his or her supervisor or department head to discuss possible options, and students should contact their professors in advance.
Emergency service personnel are expected to report to work in any case to keep essential services and operations functioning.
