UT employees are dedicated, adaptable and play a vital role in creating a vibrant community. Many of our staff members have been supporting the university remotely to help safeguard our community.

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.

University Masking Guidance

Masks are optional inside university buildings and outdoors. For individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have weakened immune systems, masking and social distancing are optional but recommended.

See the university’s health behavior guidance for the most current information on who should mask and when.
