Inclement Weather Policy
As a primarily residential campus with students who continue to need services irrespective of the weather, Clark University rarely closes. When the University is open during inclement weather, all regular employment policies remain in effect. If you are absent from work, you may use earned personal or vacation time for this purpose. If you will not be at work, will be arriving late, or need to leave early, please notify your supervisor as soon as possible.
Whether the University remains open or closes, each administrative department should determine their own staffing needs, which may include working from home. However, it is expected that administrative departments that are key to operations and sustaining the student experience, must identify essential staff to remain on campus without interruption.
Our teaching model generally is in person. If we close the campus, faculty should teach remotely, if feasible and after consultation with their department chairs.
