We are lucky to have many core strengths across the university, and our staff members are prominent among them. They make the university run. It’s of the utmost importance that our staff feels safe, encouraged and prepared while continuing to support the university.

Returning to Campus

Starting in June, remote employees may return to onsite work with supervisor approval using a phased-in schedule, which will be well communicated as plans are made.

Flexible Work Arrangements

We are excited to pilot more widespread use of flexible work arrangements during the 2021-22 academic year. Your supervisors and HR reps will have more detailed information throughout the summer, and we’ll be sharing further updates via Internal Communications, but here’s a summary:

  • During May, a cross-campus leadership task force developed campus-wide guidelines that have now been shared with College, School and Unit (CSU) leadership.
  • In June, CSUs will develop their own specific plans based on these guidelines.
  • In July, units will determine if and how they might implement flexible work arrangements following their CSU’s guidelines
  • In August, our “near normal” will be in full swing.
