Emergency closings and early dismissal policy

Vice President for Human Resources Leo V. Sullivan has issued the annual reminder concerning the University's policy for work cancellation, delayed openings and early dismissal due to inclement weather or other emergencies. Employees should tune to WBZ-TV News Channel 4, WCVB-TV Channel 5 "Eye Opener News" or WBZ News Radio 1030 AM between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. for announcements of cancellations, delays or closings. Employees also may dial ext.2-INFO or see the BCInfo Web page [] for information.

An announcement canceling classes does not mean there is a cancellation of work; it will specifically mention that Boston College is "closed" when employees are not expected to report.

Unless otherwise notified, all staff are expected to remain at work until closing.
