Dear UNCG Community,

As we look ahead to the coming week, the immediate and long-term impacts of Hurricane Florence remain significant. Weather is still a substantial challenge across our state.

In the interest of creating the safest possible conditions for our students and based on the guidance of local and state agencies, UNCG has elected to cancel classes for Monday. This should allow for safer travel conditions to develop in much of the state. We will also move to Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work. We anticipate resuming full operations and academic activities on Tuesday.

Students are urged to exercise good judgement and monitor local weather forecasts and road conditions when determining travel plans. Those who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and seek help if needed from the Dean of Students office. Make decisions that keep you safe.

We recognize many in our Spartan community – students, faculty and staff – have family, friends and loved ones who have been directly impacted by this storm. We also understand that many of our students may be dealing with stress as they manage their way through individual difficulties. We are here to help you. Students needing additional guidance and support should please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. The Dean of Students office will also be operational next week. Employees with any concerns or questions about benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

We are working with partners across the state to continuously assess the situation, and we will communicate further as needed.

Thank you and be safe!
