Dear Employees:

As the President has said in her email messages, the University’s goal during the current public health emergency is to provide our students with the opportunity to complete their spring term studies, while minimizing the risk of exposure for our campus community.

Our faculty and staff are rallying to make this possible, and we are very grateful for your dedication.

The University’s leaders are monitoring the situation closely and making every effort to support you through this unusual period.

It is important to us that you have the most up-to-date information possible and know that we are here to assist you in any way we can including our policy about self-isolating after returning from travel to high-risk areas or having contact with patients who have COVID-19; as well as information about sick leave and remote working arrangements.

Please ask your supervisor, dean, vice president or my office if you have any questions. You can also write to
