Extraordinary Weather Conditions
SUNY Delhi, as with other State agencies, can be “closed” only by the Governor. Local government officials, police, radio and television stations, and campus officials have no authority to close State offices or facilities. If weather conditions warrant, the President of the College, or his designee, is authorized to cancel classes. During such extraordinary weather conditions, the college will remain open and essential employees are required to remain on duty or report for work to avoid interruption of essential services. Essential employees include heating plant, university police, food service, animal care, health services, and certain maintenance personnel.
If classes are canceled, no employee will be deprived of the opportunity to work. If an employee chooses not to work on days classes are canceled, the employee must charge their time to appropriate leave credits, with supervisor approval. The campus has no authority to excuse employee absences without charge to leave credits.
The campus will do their best to inform the campus of the operating status of the college, such as classes being canceled, in a variety of ways, which may include:
- Rave Alert: Faculty, staff and students who have signed up for Rave will receive notification via that system;
- Radio and Television: The following media coverage areas will be notified about conditions that affect normal operations:
Binghamton - (WBNG)
Oneonta - Town square media
Website: When possible, the Marketing and Communications Office will place a message on the main SUNY Delhi web page, if classes are canceled or delayed.
On the rare occasion when a faculty member may need to cancel an individual class, the faculty member will need to notify their Dean and School Administrative Assistant by phone (or voicemail), in addition to an email to the Dean, School Administrative Assistant, Program Director, and Students.
Please report any hazardous ice conditions to the work order line at 746-4020 during normal business hours, or to University Police, 746-4700, after hours.
