Weather-Related Events and Emergencies on Campus

Acadia University’s Emergency Response Team assesses and shares information to our campus community and the general public when there is a weather-related event or emergency situation with the potential to disrupt campus operations.

Decisions regarding campus operations during weather-related events are based on a protocol of careful monitoring of the Environment Canada Weather Office, Emergency Management Office for the province of Nova Scotia, and RCMP advisories; as well as consultation with NS Department of Transportation, Town of Wolfville Public Works, and Physical Plant Services. Weather-related class cancellations and campus closures are at the discretion of the University’s Senior Administration. Emergency situations on campus require timely decisions, which are coordinated by Acadia’s Department of Safety and Security in consultation with Senior Administration.

Decisions are made and communicated as early as possible.

Guiding Principles

Acadia University shall use available resources and exercise good judgment to:

  • Preserve and protect the health and safety of our campus community and visiting public.

  • Ensure communication to students, faculty, staff, other members of the Acadia community, and the general public is a priority during a weather-related event or emergency situation.

Student and Employee Responsibilities
