Arkansas Tech University plans to be open and begin classes for the June/July session as scheduled on Monday, June 3, at its campuses in Russellville and Ozark.
“We will continue to monitor the Arkansas River flooding as new information becomes available and make day-by-day decisions concerning our operations for the duration of this emergency situation,” said Dr. Robin E. Bowen, ATU president. “Our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and neighbors, especially those directly affected by the flooding. We will work to accommodate the needs of students and employees whose homes and travel are impacted.”
If necessary, any updates about classes being cancelled and/or offices closing on a particular day due to flooding would be communicated through OneTech announcements, e-mail messages to members of the university community, ATU’s social media accounts, www.arkansastechnews.com, local media outlets and the ATU Alert text messaging system for faculty, staff and students.

ATU students on the Ozark campus with travel issues related to attending class may contact their June/July session instructors or call (479) 667-2117.
