A request from
President Dr. Rick Niece reminds everyone that weekly chapel
services at Ozarks are encouraged but not mandatory. Offices will not
be officially closed during Chapel, but anyone who wishes to attend
is encouraged to do so. In situations where all office personnel wish
to attend Chapel, employees should see their supervisors about making
arrangements to cover the office. No campus sponsored organizational
events or meetings are to be scheduled during Chapel, except in extraordinary
circumstances. In these instances, the Chaplain and the President should
be consulted in advance.
