Emergency Liberal Leave Policy

View Policy


During a declared emergency, local public transportation or other public services may be disrupted, making it difficult for employees to get to work, and access to the College campus may be restricted. Examples of such an emergency may be a ransomware attack or catastrophic failure such as heating/cooling, forest fire etc. This policy does not apply to short-term events like inclement weather or snow dates.

In such circumstances, the College will endeavor to continue providing services to students, including academic instruction, and residential and food service for students who are unable to leave the campus. Thus, it is likely that faculty and staff, will continue to work on-campus or provide services through telecommuting agreements, as outlined in Goucher’s Telecommuting Policy (PDF).
