Afternoon update - Tuesday Classes and Campus Operations

October 28, 2019

 Vice Chancellor, Administration


Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

We are writing to let you know the latest status regarding our power supply and impact on campus operations.

PG&E has restored power to campus and our facilities staff is in the process of converting from our cogeneration plant back to shared power with PG&E. This is expected to take several hours, so classes and campus operations will remain suspended for the duration of Monday evening. People should continue to avoid the campus until Tuesday morning. Building access will be restricted until regular business hours on Tuesday.

Classes will meet as scheduled and full campus operations will resume on Tuesday. Campus academic leadership will send a message shortly to the campus community about extensive efforts that have been put in place today around instructional resilience and how to engage in helping to preserve our academic mission.

Campus leaders will continue to monitor the situation - which remains very fluid - and will keep our community informed.



Marc Fisher
Vice Chancellor, Administration

Alicia Johnson
Director, Office of Emergency Management
