Arkansas State remains closed on Wednesday, Feb. 1

Arkansas State University will remain closed on Wednesday, Feb. 1, due to a major winter storm.

With approximately a half inch of ice accumulation from overnight sleet, temperatures hovering in the high 20s and another round of wintery mix predicted for Tuesday afternoon, all on-campus classes are cancelled for Feb. 1, and all academic and business offices remain closed.

For Wednesday, the following on-campus services will operate under their established, abbreviated hours:

  • The Reng Student Union will open for on-campus student usage at 8 a.m., closing at 8 p.m.
  • Dining Services will operate on brunch hours.

The following facilities will be closed:

  • The Dean B. Ellis Library (online resources available 24/7)
  • Red WOLF Center

With the wintery mix forecast to end on Wednesday and a potential warming above 32 degrees, an evaluation of campus roads and surfaces will be made on Wednesday to determine if campus can re-open for regular business for Feb. 2.

Prepared to Respond


The Regional Center for Disaster Preparedness Education was created in 2005 in response to an unmet need for disaster education within the health professions. We offer courses in basic and advanced disaster life support, homeland security, and emergency management. Our courses are offered via distance education technology to ensure availability for everyone, regardless of geographic location.

Large or small, disasters happen. In fact, there has been a major or federally declared disaster in Northeast Arkansas in each of the last 10 years. Being prepared to respond when disaster strikes can be the difference between life and death for victims left behind.

Practicum Sites

Practicum sites are tailored to individual students needs and career aspirations. Examples include county offices of emergency management, hospitals, non-government organizations, emergency medical services, law enforcement agencies and/or state and federal emergency response agencies.


Accreditation

All degrees in the DPEM program (AAS, BS, MS, Graduate Certificate) are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Emergency Management Education (CAEME).

This accreditation was awarded February 25, 2017 and extends until 2022. Five years is the maximum accreditation time period.

This accreditation is retroactive for all previous graduates.
