Stanley Troup, MD, former senior vice president at the University of Cincinnati and director of the UC Medical Center from July 1, 1974 until Dec. 31, 1981, died Dec. 30. He was 86.

As director, he provided executive leadership for the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing and Health, and Pharmacy in addition to Cincinnati General Hospital and Christian R. Holmes Hospital.

Snow Emergency Policy at the College of Medicine

UC’s snow emergency policy has important clarifications as it pertains to the College of Medicine, including the Reading Campus (formerly Genome Research Institute), Hoxworth Blood Center and University Health Services.

The University of Cincinnati is always officially open. During periods of severe inclement weather, public emergency or other crisis, the president or a designated officer may announce through UC's electronic mail system and local news that some or all of the university's offices and facilities are closed for part or all of a workday. 

All employees in the College of Medicine are considered "essential employees” and are expected to report to work or remain at work as scheduled during emergency closings.
