WIU-Macomb, QC: Update

[Posted 5 p.m.]


MACOMB/MOLINE, IL -- The closure for the Western Illinois University Macomb and Quad Cities campuses will expire at midnight (12 a.m.). A weather advisory will be in effect through noon Wednesday, Feb. 27 for both campuses. At this time, the Macomb and Quad Cities campuses will resume regular operations Feb. 27 and classes will begin at 8 a.m.

The weather advisory allows employees the option to use accrued vacation time, compensatory time or approved leave without pay after notifying their supervisor.

According to University policy, if a weather advisory is issued and students consider travel to campus unsafe, they should arrange with faculty to complete academic course requirements missed during the time of the advisory. Individual faculty members are responsible for their academic course requirements, and it is the individual faculty member's decision whether or not to grant a request to make up work that has been missed as a result of a weather advisory.

The WIU policy on limiting University operations because of emergency conditions is available in the Administrative Procedures Handbook, which can be viewed at wiu.edu/policies/emergency.php.

Additional updates will be posted on wiu.edu as necessary.
