The person(s) responsible for updating the campus community regarding winter weather/campus closures this winter season has done a fabulous job. This person(s) has prioritized the safety of NIU’s students, staff and faculty and takes into account the wide range of distances and commutes each person travels to get to NIU, as well as understanding the large base of commuter students NIU has. From the timing of announcements, communication regarding updates, to ensuring the community is aware, the process has been strong. I feel that this action has rippled an effect on staff morale as it is a way for NIU to show action when they share about caring for their students, staff, faculty and campus community. Way to go!
