Individual faculty members who decide to cancel their classes based on the guidance offered on the Dean of the Faculty website should notify their students through Blackboard in advance of the scheduled class time. 

Any changes to the University's operating status will be posted on the University homepage and on the SNOW line, (609)-258-SNOW, as soon as information becomes available.
