for adverse weather

For IU School of Medicine students:

First and second year students:

Follow instructions posted by Indiana University, unless you are on a regional campus. If you are on a regional campus you should follow instructions provided by that campus.

Third and fourth year students:

If your clerkship site is based at a regional campus (defined as within 45 minute driving time) follow the campus closure notices for that campus. If the regional campus is closed, DO NOT report for clerkship related activities including clinical duty.  
However, if your clerkship site IS NOT located within 45 minutes of a regional campus, please refer to the Indiana Travel Advisory and DO NOT report if the county where you are currently living or your clerkship site is located is under a travel warning (shown in red on the map).

For IU School of Medicine residents: 

Residents are to follow procedures set forth by their program directors.

For IU School of Medicine employees:

When the campus remains open during adverse weather, employees are expected to use their best judgment if adverse weather creates extreme travel hazards for commuting to and from the workplace. They should not endanger themselves nor ignore the statements of local law-enforcement officials about traveling during adverse weather. Staff should make every effort to notify their supervisor if they cannot get to work, and advance notice requirements for use of time off will be waived.


Closings also will be announced through the local news media, the IUSM website, and digital signs.
