Essential Staff

The mission of Augustana College remains focused on its students. While weather, emergencies or other unforeseen instances may necessitate closing a portion or all of the campus, the role of some staff members require their attendance even when our campus in closed. In each individual situation, affected staff members will receive direction and guidance from the department manager or supervisor regarding when and where their services are needed. Any decisions made to close the campus for a full day or partial day will be made by the cabinet. Departments that are considered "essential" include:
  • Dining Services
  • Security
  • Facilities
  • Grounds
  • Information Technology

Additional information on how compensation and time off are handled in these situations is included in the "Inclement Weather" and "Call-in Pay, Emergency Pay, Hazard Pay" sections of this handbook.
