Adverse Weather Alert: NCCU Operating Under Condition 1 Beginning at 10 p.m. Tonight, Feb. 17
Durham County and other counties in central North Carolina are currently under a winter weather advisory. Freezing and frigid temperatures are forecasted. North Carolina Central University will operate under Condition 1 (Reduced Operations) of the Adverse Weather and Emergency Event Policy today, Feb. 17, beginning at 10 p.m. through 11 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 18. All classes will be remote until 11 a.m.
Under Condition 1:
“The University remains open, but certain non-mandatory operations may be reduced due to more limited staffing. Mandatory employees must report to or remain at work. All other employees have the option to report late, leave early, or not work at all; however, the employee is responsible for informing his/her supervisory chain in a timely manner of all such decisions. Employees must code available leave for any work time missed during a Condition 1, unless the supervisor authorized off-site work arrangements…”
Should campus operations change, we will communicate all updates via the Rave system (email, text and phone call), weather telephone hotline (919-530-7220), social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and on the NCCU website.
Faculty and staff should reference the correspondence distributed by the Department of Human Resources on December 18, 2020, regarding the Adverse Weather and Emergency Event Policy.
