While labeled a "partial" shutdown, the effects of the federal government shutdown are real and growing. While the majority of the university's work is continuing without interruption, impacts willl expand as the shutdown continues. We are monitoring effects on individuals on our campus and doing our best to ease those impacts wherever possible. We also continue to advocate more broadly to end the shutdown through higher education alliances like the AAU, APLU and AAAS.

Faculty and staff who receive official notices directly from any federal agencies should forward the notice to OCG at ocg@colorado.edu.

Students who need support should contact Student Support and Case Management (SSCM). Also, students whose ability to pay their spring tuition bill is affected by the shutdown should review their options at the Bursar's Office impact page

A more comprehensive list of support resources for students, faculty and staff is available on the Campus Support Services page.
