Safety & Emergency Preparedness
Lenoir-Rhyne University has developed emergency and crisis communication plans to respond to and disseminate information during an emergency or when events impact normal campus operations.
The campus community should closely monitor and follow information provided through official university communication channels, including RAVE Alerts, campus email, notifications posted to the university website and LR's main institutional social media accounts.
Inclement Weather Policy & Notifications
Lenoir-Rhyne University may change its operating status during and surrounding periods of inclement weather. At such times, the university has a prescribed method for evaluation and communication of these changes to university staff, faculty, students, and the public.
The decision to cancel classes, close the university, cancel or postpone university-sponsored programs or activities is based on the overall concern for the safety of the university community and continuity of services and support for residential students.
