It is the general operating procedure of Central Missouri not to close because of inclement weather, temporary power failures, or similar "emergency" situations. However, the UCM President may implement an Emergency Closing that will close non-weather essential operations at the university. Employees are expected to be at their assigned stations during their regular periods of work with the exception of an Emergency Closing. Procedures for attendance during Emergency Closings are set out below and should be reviewed carefully by all employees.



An Emergency closing means there is an official closing or delay in the opening of the university for non-weather essential personnel. The announcement will include the shifts which are affected (day, evening, and/or night), within two hours of reporting time, or as soon as possible, on the following media:

  • KOKO and KXKX - Warrensburg
