Dr. Rob Tempel is in touch with all CSLC Directors, and he will be coordinating the management of the CSLC operations on an individual basis. Please see links to CSLCs below. 

Employees
For employees, Condition 2 of the UNC System Adverse Weather and Emergency Event policy continues until 5 AM Monday, Sept. 17. Condition 1 begins and continues until 8 AM Wednesday, when normal operations resume. Conditions will vary considerably throughout the state and each individual is urged to consider safety first when making plans to return to campus.

Faculty and staff who are unable to report to work should contact their immediate supervisor.

Students
Unable to return as scheduled should follow the usual protocol for absence.
Unable to return for their scheduled classes should contact their Course Coordinator and the Office of Student Affairs.

Residents who are unable to return should contact Dr. Dave MacPherson or Dr. Mike Webb.
