The official announcement about tomorrow has been issued from CUNY central:
“The City University of New York (CUNY) colleges and central office will be closed on Tuesday March 14, 2017. Essential staff is expected to report to work. All classes are cancelled.”
From: Dave Christy, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs:
Because so many classes meet on Tuesday/Thursday timetables and we have already scheduled one virtual class meeting for these classes, the class sessions missed on Tuesday, March 14 are rescheduled for Friday, May 19, which is currently a “reading day” prior to final examinations.
If classes scheduled to meet on Wednesday, March 15 are canceled, members of the faculty are directed to post class materials and readings on Blackboard or Blogs at Baruch (or other online sites), so that students can study the course material and the syllabus can proceed without interruption. If faculty prefer to communicate directly with all registered students in a class using an alternative to Blackboard, they should be certain to maintain a copy of that communication and any learning materials.
To keep abreast of CUNY’s plans for Wednesday, the following links should be helpful:
