Faculty & Staff

September 17, 2018 

Members of the Campus Community,

With Florence having moved out of South Carolina, I hope all members of the campus community experienced little disruption or will be able to recover quickly.

Winthrop was fortunate not to have experienced significant damage over the last few days and will resume classes tomorrow, Tuesday, September 18. As it did today, the university will operate under normal business hours.

We also recognize the terrible harm done by Florence. Our hearts go out to those dealing with damage and personal crises resulting from the storm. You may live in an area where you are concerned about travelling or you are addressing personal matters associated with the storm. We understand you may exercise judgement and caution regarding attending classes or coming to work. But please understand it is your responsibility to work with your professors regarding coursework or tests — I'm sure they will be sensitive to your needs. And staff must coordinate with their supervisors any time off.
