Telework Resources

Telework Resources

Resources for Faculty and Staff

Introduction

While many positions require serving current and prospective students, faculty, patrons, etc. in a traditional in-person format, there may be positions conducive to some level of remote work. These resources are intended to help employees and supervisors determine telework eligibility and provide guidance and best practices for successful telework arrangements. Check back regularly for updates to this page.

In addition to telework arrangements or for positions where telework is not a suitable option, supervisors are encouraged to consider other flexible work options. Examples include alternatives to the traditional 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. workday, such as modified start and stop times or a compressed workweek. Flexible work options may help supervisors promote productivity among their team and improve employee job satisfaction and retention. Flexible work options may not be suitable for all positions as adequate coverage during university office hours must be maintained.
