Blizzard of 2016

"The historic snowfall of Jan. 22‒23 challenged our resources at UMB like few other events in our 209-year history. I offer my heartfelt thanks to the men and women in facilities and plant operations, parking services, public safety, and other departments who so ably prevailed over nearly 30 inches of snow. Unlike some other universities that can close their doors for extended periods, UMB’s clinical responsibilities and ongoing research make it essential that we reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. To see their snowy challenges firsthand, enjoy the slide show." - Jay A. Perman, MD
