Guidelines for Maintaining Critical Functions and Services at MSU
Circumstances may arise that force Central Administration at Michigan State University to modify, interrupt, suspend or curtail certain operations or services for a period of time. The university as a whole, however, never shuts down. This means that certain functions critical to keep the university open must always be maintained.
The university recently developed a set of guidelines for departments to use in the event of emergency conditions due to weather, natural disaster, major utility failure, health or environmental crisis, or other unforeseen circumstance that might cause a modification of operations. The documents below are provided to assist departments with meeting the university's needs should circumstances warrant.
