RESOLUTION

The Faculty Senate wishes to express its deep concern for the safety of our students, faculty and staff during periods of inclement weather such as occurred during the snow/ice storm of mid-December. While Physical Plant devoted some effort to clearing parking lots, very little was done to clear pedestrian paths. Some of these, especially stairways, ramps and other sloping areas remained extremely slippery and hazardous three and four days after the storm, even though the University had re-opened, and we fear that serious injuries could result if more attention is not paid to these areas. We therefore strongly urge the Administration to implement improved procedures to ensure the campus safety when classes are in session and offices are open.
