Safety First:
The safety of UW-Green Bay students, faculty and staff is the priority over the next few days. Wind-chill temperatures are expected to reach as low as -40 degrees. These are extremely dangerous temperatures and should be taken seriously. Students are asked to dress appropriately and travel with others when moving across campus to ensure safety. Faculty and staff are asked to use best judgement and caution when travelling to and from campus. Faculty and staff should consult the inclement weather policy (link) for guidance related to requesting time off and working from home if they do not feel safe or able to travel to campus.

The weather will continue to be monitored and the campus community will be updated as needed. Monitor campus email, texts, social media and website postings for any updates or changes to this schedule as weather forecasts can change quickly.
