Transition to a Virtual Campus

Most staff, faculty, and managers have transitioned to work off-site, except those designated to perform essential services. The majority of business operations and student support services continue to be available through phone, video conference, or email. 

Human Resources Services Center has developed robust FAQs and guidelines for employees and managers to address policies around this transition.

Telecommuting Tips and Resources

We've created a complete list of resources for developing work-life balance at home, setting up a productive and healthy home office, and technology and connectivity, as well as guidelines for purchasing office supplies and other home-office expenses.

Telecommuting Tips and Resources


All non-essential international and domestic travel is suspended through June 1, 2021. President Hutchinson has the authority to approve exceptions, and circumstances will be weighed carefully when considering exception requests. Following the Chancellor’s Office memo of June 25, 2020, system-wide meetings and conferences will continue in a virtual mode through June 30, 2021. More details can be found on the travel website.
