How UW-Tacoma Tackles Winter Weather

tacoma snowKudos to our partners on the Tacoma Campus in their recent battle with Ole’ Man Winter earlier this month!  Like their colleagues at the Bothell and Seattle campuses (and dozens of other satellite locations throughout Western Washington), the work done behind-the-scenes by university staff is both complex and a bit magical.  If you ever wanted to get a glimpse of the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and WHY the Tacoma campus “suspends operations“, allows for “early release” or “delays opening“, click here to find out.  With public safety always the primary objective, and with a number of other factors to consider, it is useful for our community to understand the factors that go into these decisions.
