Inclement Weather


In the event of inclement weather conditions, all operations of UW-Whitewater will be carried on to the extent practical. Therefore, it should be assumed that scheduled activities will continue unless instructions from the Chancellor’s Office indicate otherwise.

In the unlikely event that classes are canceled or a significant change in modality is required university-wide (remote learning), UW-Whitewater will provide information through the emergency notification system, which sends notifications via email, the UW-Whitewater homepage, mobile alerts and social media.

As with any inclement weather event, please use your own best judgment and consider your personal
safety before deciding to attend classes or work.

       • Faculty and instructional staff members should communicate with students via Canvas regarding
         individual course cancellations or individual changes in course format/modality.

       • Students should communicate with instructors if they won’t be in class.

       • Employees who cannot make it safely to work should contact their supervisors and request
         appropriate leave or make arrangements for remote work as their job duties allow.
