  • Staff members with concerns about returning to campus for reasons other than their own underlying health condition, should speak with their supervisor who will work with the Office of Human Resources for additional guidance.
  • Faculty members with concerns about returning to campus for reasons other than their own underlying health condition, should complete a Remote Instruction Request Form, which was previously provided by the Provost and is available through their dean’s office.

B. Students:

  • Students should contact the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence. This may include a request to take all courses remotely or live in a single room.
