Eagle Weather Alert: Tropical Storm Ian Update (Sept. 29)

Posted September 29, 2022, 5:20PM

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) officials are closely monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Ian. While its potential impact in North Carolina is uncertain at this time, weather models forecast heavy rain, flash flooding and wind gusts of up to 45 mph, as the storm approaches the state tomorrow, Sept. 30 through Sunday, Oct. 2.

NCCU will operate under Condition 1 (Reduced Operations) of the Adverse Weather and Emergency Event Policy today, Sept. 29, beginning at 10 p.m., through 12 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 1.

During adverse weather and other emergency event conditions, employees should take reasonable precautions for personal safety.

Classes will remain in session. Faculty who have scheduled classes – but who are unable to report on a day when classes are being held – should make every effort to notify class participants in advance to the extent possible of class cancellation. Students who miss scheduled activities will be allowed to make up any work missed. Faculty members should make arrangements to complete all interrupted activities.

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. Faculty and staff should reference the Adverse Weather and Emergency Event Policy. 

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.
