Jan 28, 2022 Update

A winter weather advisory has been issued for Durham County, which includes a winter storm beginning this evening, Friday, Jan. 28. Snowfall is anticipated. 

North Carolina Central University will operate under Condition 1 (Reduced Operations) of the Adverse Weather and Emergency Event Policy today, Jan. 28, beginning at 6 p.m. through Saturday, Jan. 29, 11 a.m.

All evening classes after 6 p.m. today, Jan. 28, will be held virtually. All NCCU Athletics events on Saturday, Jan. 29, will still occur as scheduled.

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…”

Employees not working during a Condition 1 declaration are required to use personal leave.  Adverse weather leave must be reconciled (made-up) within 90 days.

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 (FacebookTwitterInstagram) and on the NCCU website.
