A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

AVC Advisory Board

AVC Advisory Board Meeting

In August of 2005 Assistant Vice Chancellor for Facilities Al Stoverink commissioned the Employee Satisfaction Task Force to make initial recommendations establishing a working AVC Advisory Board.

Committee Information

Purpose

The AVC Advisory Board assists the AVC to ensure that ASU becomes a leader in education and service to students, parents, faculty and staff. The boards mission includes identifying problems from the perspective of frontline staff, and suggesting solutions that improve work processes and work environment to make operations more effective and efficient.

Committee Information

The AVC Advisory Board is comprised non-supervisor employees, each elected by their peers for a two-year term. The board meets regularly to review new policies, discuss upcoming events, and address any other important issues regarding FM operations and staff. Beginning in 2014, the board voted to meet quarterly rather than monthly. Special meetings are held when necessary.

Our Mission

We are committed to excellence in customer service, safety and integrity. We provide an environment that promotes quality learning through effective leadership and innovative development of A-State Facilities.

Fairness. Honesty. Respect. Accountability.
Facilities Management operates under these core values as set forth by the Division of Finance and Administration at ASU.
