The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Allied Health Student Handbook 2019-2020

11.7 - Campus Police and Public Safety/Inclement Weather Policy

The Campus Police and Public Safety’s website includes policies and procedures of interest to students regarding right to know, general safety, hazardous weather, and emergency services. Information regarding campus closing due to hazardous weather is announced on the OUHSC home page and is available at 405.271.6499 (OKC) and 918.660.3999 (Tulsa) and through the University’s Emergency Communication System (ECS). The University of Oklahoma’s Emergency Communication System (ECS) enables the University to send time-sensitive notifications about emergency situations to all students, faculty, staff, and identified campus affiliates. These urgent messages will be transmitted to all available voice service, e-mail and text messaging options. Students in clinical assignments are considered professionals-in-training and are learning the responsibilities of health care providers whose services are vital to patients, clinics and hospitals.  Therefore, they too are responsible for meeting their obligations regardless of inclement weather unless relieved of these duties by their instructor/clinical supervisor.
