Southeastern welcomes students back for the start of classes this week while we continue to keep all faculty, staff and students who are not yet able to make it to campus in our thoughts as the region works to recover from devastating flooding.
We attempted to reach ALL our students in recent days, but we realize communication has been difficult, if not impossible for some. If you are just now able to see this message, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can have a better understanding of your status and work with you so you can attain your educational goals.
FLOOD RECOVERY FAQs
An emergency condition is defined as "a situation that creates a threat to public health, welfare, safety, or property, such as may arise by reason of floods, epidemics, riots, equipment failures, or such other reasons as may be proclaimed by the Commissioner of Administration." In summary, an emergency condition or situation must threaten:
A. the functioning of Southeastern LA University; or
B. the preservation or protection of property; or
C. the health or safety of any person.
POOR PLANNING DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN EMERGENCY CONDITION.

A written report explaining the nature of the emergency must then be signed by the department head and submitted to the Office of Purchasing, along with a requisition for the materials or services purchased. This report and requisition are required to be submitted within two (2) working days and must indicate the competition that was obtained or attempted.
