PURPOSE: To establish basic procedures for notifying students, faculty and staff of unscheduled closures.

Adverse weather, power failure, or other events can affect the college's schedule. When such events occur, the following procedures for notifying the college community and the public must be followed:

  1. The president, or designee, will make the decision to cancel or postpone classes, activities, or work hours.
  2. The Director of Public Information will craft a concise message to communicate to faculty, students and the public.
  3. The Marketing department will send an email to employee and student email accounts; post messages on the college's student and employee portal pages and the homepage of the college's website; communicate the information via the college's primary social media accounts, and notify the local broadcast media.  The Marketing department will also record messages on the TTC Infoline. Students call 574.6262 ext. 9091, and faculty/staff call 574.6262 ext. 9092.
  4. If circumstances warrant, the college will use TTC's Emergency Alert System to send text and/or voice messages to cell/home phones and mobile devises, and/or email to personal accounts.  Students and employees must subscribe to the alert system to receive such messages.
