Employee Information

As every new day brings changes and additional guidelines recommended by local, state and national authorities and experts, we will share the latest information pertaining to employees over the next few weeks here and in the updates section of this site.

Below is additional information that may be helpful to employees for the next several weeks. We will continue to add information and resources. Some of this is information that you already have, and some are additions or changes. 

Operating Schedule

In accordance with state and federal guidelines, we are continuing a remote work schedule for non-essential employees until further notice. We are in the process of developing a multi-phase plan for returning to campus and we will notify you of this plan in the near future. Although many employees will be working from home, these are “regular” workdays and employees working remotely are expected to be “on call and available” to complete assigned work during normal business hours. Please see more specific guidelines from human resources here for additional details on working remotely. Essential employees who need to work on campus during this week will be notified by their supervisors.

Spring and summer classes will be delivered in an online/remote format.
