Storm Update

Posted on Monday, September 17th, 2018 by Zachary R. Smith under Archived, Emergency Management, Police - General Information.
Update 9/17/18 @ 8:45

Dear UNCG Community,

The impacts of Hurricane Florence will be felt around our region for a very long time. On our campus, we are able to return to normal operations, but we recognize this is not true across the state. Recovery will take time. We know many in our community have been directly affected by this storm.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, it remains our intention to be fully operational beginning Tuesday morning, September 18.  All classes will resume, and most other activities and events will take place as scheduled. All offices, services and other functions will be operating as normal.  Although the campus is generally safe to navigate, the heavy rains have made for slippery conditions in certain places. Please be careful as we continue to manage a few ongoing issues related to the storm.

We recognize that not everyone in our community will be able to return to normalcy at this time.  Those experiencing personal and family challenges have our support and understanding.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and carefully monitor Canvas and other communications channels for class-specific updates. Faculty will work with students who are facing challenges returning to their normal schedules. Students who have been impacted by this event and need support are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students Office at 336.334.5514 or the Counseling Center at 336.334.5874.

Employees with any concerns or questions about Employee Assistance Programs, benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information. Those interested in updates from across the UNC System should visit http://www.northcarolina.edu/florence.

Please continue to monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel. We look forward to seeing our students, faculty and staff back on campus and in class, even as our thoughts remain with those most directly impacted by Hurricane Florence.

Thank you.

Update 9/16/2018 @ 9:30 AM

Dear UNCG Community,

As we have seen, the impacts of Hurricane Florence have been substantial and widespread.  There will be lasting effects throughout our region. Across the state, numerous roads and highways are closed or unsafe for travel, and there are significant recovery and emergency management efforts underway.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, UNCG (like many other state universities) has canceled classes for Monday, September 17 to allow more time for the many students who left the Triad in advance of the storm to more safely return.

Additionally, the University will operate at Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Offices will reopen, and non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work.

We expect to return to normal operations and a full academic and activity schedule on Tuesday, September 18.  Most regular campus services will be available as normal for students effective Monday morning.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors to make appropriate arrangements. Please also carefully monitor Canvas and other communications channels for class-specific updates. Faculty will work with students who are facing challenges returning to their normal schedules.

We know many of our students have family, friends and loved ones who may be impacted by this storm. If you are in need of urgent mental health resources, please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. Employees with any concerns or questions about Employee Assistance Programs, benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

Above all else, we ask everyone to consider their safety and monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel.  We will continue to monitor the situation.  You can expect another communication on Monday to confirm plans or address any new changes as conditions evolve.

Thank you.

As Tropical Storm Florence continues to impact weather conditions across the region, we are continuing to manage the effects here in Greensboro. To this point we have experienced some heavy rain and gusty winds, but our campus is well prepared, and we have no significant impacts to our facilities, services and capabilities. We appreciate the cooperation, support and flexibility of our students, faculty and staff during these somewhat unpredictable days.

As previously stated, we expect to be back to normal operations by Sunday evening, and plan to be fully ready for all academic and other UNCG activities on Monday. If that situation changes we will alert you. If you are interested in conditions at UNCG, please visit our weather cam and monitoring system here.

Dear Campus Community,

As we continue to monitor Hurricane Florence, the substantial impact of this storm is becoming clearer. Locally at UNCG, we still anticipate very heavy rains and some significant winds. Frequent gusts and possible flooding in the Triad do present real safety issues. We urge all in our community to remain prepared and focused on safety – and to take the duration of this storm seriously.

Please continue to monitor the National Weather Service for the latest information. We will continue with our current plans as stated here.

We know many of our students have family, friends and loved ones who may be impacted by this storm. The uncertainty of these situations can cause stress and concern. If you are in need of urgent mental health resources, please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. For emergencies, call the University Police at 336.334.4444.

Update 09/13/2018 @ 11:20 AM

Dear Campus Community,

As you know, we are continuing to closely monitor Hurricane Florence. This remains a large and dangerous storm that will have significant impacts across North Carolina and the Atlantic coast.  For Greensboro, we have seen some improvement in terms of anticipated conditions. However, predictions have been changing daily, and we must remain well-prepared and vigilant should the expected impact to the Triad change.

Please continue to monitor the National Weather Service for the latest information. We will continue with our current plans as stated here.

We know many in our community have family, friends and loved ones in the path of this storm.  UNCG is here to support you. Students needing any specific help or information can contact the Dean of Students office. UNCG will continue to provide updates throughout this event.

Thank you.

Hurricane Florence

Posted on Tuesday, September 11th, 2018 by Kristi Dellay Reese under Archived, Emergency Management, Police - General Information.
Update 09/11/2018 @ 10:53 AM

Dear Campus Community,

Due to the anticipated and potential effects of Hurricane Florence in the Triad, UNC Greensboro will cancel all classes and all other university activities beginning at noon on Wednesday, September 12.  At this time, all home athletic events are also cancelled beginning Wednesday at noon.  Updates on athletic events will be available at the UNCG Athletics website.  For employees, UNCG will enter Condition 1 of the UNC System adverse weather policy at noon on Wednesday, and at 5 p.m. we will enter Condition 2.

Normal operations are anticipated to resume at 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 16. Regular class schedules are planned to begin again Monday morning, September 17. We will continue to monitor the situation and update the campus community with any changes.

All university residence halls, critical on-campus facilities and university dining facilities plan to remain open for the duration of this storm unless specific safety concerns arise. Students that live off-campus should prepare ahead of the storm by ensuring they have at least a 3-day supply of nonperishable food, water and other essentials.  Residential students can expect to receive additional updates from Housing and Residence Life throughout the storm.  We recommend the following resources to help everyone prepare and stay informed:

The safety and preparedness of our community is our top priority.  While information is still developing about the specifics of this storm, everyone in our community should take it seriously.  Regardless of the track, the potential for several days of heavy rainfall, flooding and gusty winds across portions of North Carolina will exist. These impacts may lead to downed trees, prolonged power outages, blocked roadways, closed bridges, and disruptions to water/sewer supply.

We encourage all of our students, faculty and staff to review weather and road conditions to make well-informed, safe choices about travel. If you live east of Greensboro, please consult all relevant local resources and consider remaining here where we will have critical services and infrastructure available.  Any students choosing to travel home outside of the area are highly encouraged to do so before strong winds are expected to begin in the Triad by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

We will provide updates as needed throughout the event via email,spartanalert.uncg.edu and the university’s Facebook and Twitter pages.  Please also monitor information from National Weather Service in Raleigh.  The UNCG Office of Emergency Management will be monitoring the weather throughout the storm and may issue emergency alerts if conditions become dangerous on campus.

Take care, be safe and stay connected for more information.

What is Spartan Alert?

Posted on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 by University Police under Police - General Information.

SpartanAlert is a website created by UNCG to post emergency alerts, safety messages, and general information for services provided through the University. For instance, during inclement weather several departments will post closing and opening times and any other important information that you may need to know to prepare for the upcoming situation.

Holiday Building Security

Posted on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016 by University Police under Archived, Police - General Information.
During holidays when the University is closed, it is not uncommon for thefts to occur in the academic and administrative offices.  In order to combat these thefts, the UNCG Police Department will conduct aggressive patrols in these buildings from now until the Spring Semester begins.  These patrols have been very effective over the last few years in detecting and deterring criminal activity. Faculty and staff who are in buildings after hours or when the University is closed should have University identification available for officers to inspect should they request it.  You are also asked to contact the UNCG Police if you notice any suspicious activity while in the buildings.  Offices with graduate students who may be in the buildings during the break are requested to communicate this information to those students. Thank you for helping us make UNCG a safe place.  We hope you have a wonderful holiday break.
