Remodeling Buildings into Modern, Sustainable STEM Facilities

A Tradeline article from 8-13-14, featuring Marywood's science lab, discusses how cost and energy savings can be achieved without new construction.


Severe Weather Policy

Although Marywood University is committed to keeping its campus open at all times, inclement weather may result in necessary cancellations.  Cancellation announcements will specify classes, offices, and/or special events.

Classes

If a decision is made

  • to delay opening until 10:00 a.m., the published compressed schedule will be in effect;
  • to delay opening until 11:30 a.m. or later, the regular schedule will be in effect for the remainder of the day. 

If a particular class does not follow a standard starting time, the individual instructor should determine the meeting time closest to the standard for that day of the week.

It is understood that weather conditions can vary by geographic location.  Therefore, in times of inclement weather, when University classes are in session, students and faculty members should use their own discretion in determining whether it is safe to travel to campus. 

Accordingly and preferably, when a faculty member cancels an individual class, he/she should notify the students a minimum of ninety minutes before the start of the class meeting time.  The faculty member should notify his/her Department Chair and Dean at that time.  Similarly, a student should notify the faculty member that he/she will be absent from a class as a result of severe weather conditions.  This notice should also be given in a timely fashion, preferably ninety minutes before the meeting time of the missed class.  Where possible, the student should be afforded the opportunity to make up missed class content without penalty.  It is the responsibility of the faculty member to arrange for the student to receive, by an alternate means of the faculty member’s choice, all material covered in that class.  Upon the student’s satisfactory completion of this class material, the absence will be designated an “excused absence.”

Members of the Marywood Community should access the following sources for official announcements:

  • Marywood University Homepage: www.Marywood.edu
  • Inclement weather Hotline: 570-961-4SNO, 570-961-4766
  • Text Messaging: e2Campus Notification System

Typically, Marywood delays the start of classes until 10:00 a.m. or 11:30 a.m./Noon.

If it is determined that a delay of classes until 11:30 a.m. or later is warranted, the regular class schedule for the day will be in effect for the remainder of the day. Evening classes with a start time of 4:00 p.m. or later are not reflected in the compressed schedule.

If it is determined that a delay of classes until 10:00 a.m. is warranted, the University will follow a compressed schedule.

If a particular class does not follow a standard starting time, the individual instructor should determine the meeting time closest to the standard for that day of the week.

Examples for Classes Delayed until 10:00 a.m.

Class is held on MWF and begins at 8:00 a.m. Classes are delayed until 10:00 a.m. Students will report to their 8:00 a.m. class at 10:00 a.m. and will conclude class at 10:35 a.m.

Class is held on a Monday from 9:00 a.m. - Noon. Classes are delayed until 10:00 a.m. Students will report to class at 10:45 a.m. and will conclude no later than 12:50 p.m. The assumption in this scenario is that the student may have another class at noon, which on a compressed schedule, would begin at 1:00 p.m.

Class is held on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. - Noon. Classes are delayed until 10:00 a.m. Students would report to class at 11:10 a.m. and would conclude by 1:20 p.m. The assumption in this scenario is that the next standard scheduled meeting time is 1:00 p.m., which on a compressed schedule, would begin at 1:30 p.m.

Classes in Department X are held on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. - Noon and Noon - 3:00 p.m. Given this circumstance, students would report to their 10:00 a.m. class at 11:10 a.m. and would need to conclude this class by 12:10 p.m.Students would then report to the 12:00 p.m. class at 12:20 p.m. and conclude at the regular time.

Examples for Classes Delayed until 11:30 a.m./Noon

Class is held on MWF and begins at 11:00 a.m. Classes are delayed until 12:00 p.m. The class is canceled.

Class is held on Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. - Noon. Classes are delayed until 11:30. The class is canceled. The assumption in this scenario is that the student would be coming to class for less than a thirty minute period.

Class is held on Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Classes are delayed until 11:30. The class would begin at 11:30 a.m. The class would begin at 11:30. The assumption in this scenario is that the student would be coming to class for more than 30 minutes.
