UNCSA Alerts

Due to the potential of hazardous travel conditions overnight and into Thursday morning, the University is urging employees who are not teleworking to use their best judgment when deciding whether to travel. Contact your supervisor if you are unable to work. The University, which is operating under normal conditions, will continue to monitor conditions and provide any updates as necessary.
