Annual Campus Security Reports
The UW-Marshfield/Wood County Annual Security Reports include statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by campus and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
The reports also include institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters.
Students will be notified each year, via e-mail, when the updated report is published. Copies of the report can be obtained from the Student Affairs Office.
If you choose not to attend class due to weather conditions, please phone or e-mail your instructor. Please keep in mind that if you miss class, you are responsible for making up the work. The campus can only be closed by order of the chancellor or governor.
UW-Marshfield/Wood County rarely cancels all classes for severe weather and only when the campus cannot be safely accessed by a majority of our students. Like other area agencies serving adults, we generally stay open in the midst of stormy weather, even when area public and private schools close. Please note that even when classes are cancelled, that does not mean the campus is closed.
Weather-related cancellations will be communicated by:
- An alert through text and campus email through the eAlert Alert Notification System. You must Opt-In to receive texts.
- Post on the Cancellations page
- Post on the campus Facebook page
Announcements will be made on the following area radio and TV stations:
- WDLB (1450 AM)
- WOSQ (92.3 FM)
- WIFC (95.5 FM)
- Y106.5 (106.5 FM)
- MIX96.7 (96.7 FM)
- WGLX (103.3 FM)
- BIG CHEESE (107.9 FM)
- WAOW-TV (channel 9)
- WSAW-TV (channel 7)
Again, even when classes are cancelled the campus will not be closed even though many radio and television stations will report cancellations as “closures.”
eAlerts will automatically notify you if classes are cancelled due to inclement weather or in the case of an emergency on campus. eAlert mail messages are automatically sent to all campus email addresses.You can also receive eAlerts by text on your cell phone - just update your phone information in PRISM.
Although the Ebola virus poses no immediate threat to the general United States population, it is important to be aware of any changes in your health if you have recently traveled to one of the countries where the Ebola outbreak is occurring (currently Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the Republic of the Congo) and to seek immediate medical care.
