Prepare for severe weather

As severe weather approaches, we are monitoring forecasts closely to ensure the safety of our employees, patients and students. For now, operations on all of our campuses, including classes and clinical activities, will continue as normal. However, we will provide updates as the situation evolves on our Jagwire alerts page.

Update your personal information

Since communication during events of this nature is important, please ensure your contact information is current in the Student and Employee systems (links on the Alert Page above). Also, monitor our social media and local media outlets.

Be prepared

Do you have a personal preparedness plan? Being prepared reduces stress and increases your chances of having a positive outcome during emergencies. A few moments of preparation can make a world of difference.
