CPDC Guidance on Changes in University Operations (i.e. Inclement weather, pandemic, etc.)

Career fairs, networking, or other career-related events may be canceled if conditions or circumstances beyond the control of the University arise including, but not limited to, acts of God or war, changes in controlling law, regulations, orders or the requirements of any governmental entity, severe weather conditions, civil disorders, natural disasters, fire, epidemics/pandemics and quarantines, general strikes throughout the trade or other labor disputes affecting either party, and freight embargoes that would make it unsafe to hold the event and/or the University President elects to close the non-essential operations of the University. In such circumstances, and to offset incurred fees, organizations will receive a 75% refund of their registration fee.  In the event the University moves to virtual operations, career-related events may be conducted virtually. If an organization is unable to participate in a virtual capacity, said organization will be credited their paid registration toward the next career-related event.  Although caution is advised, attendance at the career-related events will be up to the discretion of the attendees. The Career and Professional Development Center will not be responsible for ensuring that organizations or students/alumni/graduates/candidates will attend.
