Message from Provost Fierke - COVID-19 Student Employment Related Guidance

- Released on Mar 16, 2020

For Coronavirus Student Employment Related Guidance, please read Provost Fierke’s message sent to the campus community on Saturday, March 14, 2020:

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

The university has received questions from student workers, especially those needing to work to cover expenses. Student workers are permitted to work in person on campus provided that the department for which they work implements appropriate social distancing requirements and other safety measures. We recommend that departments be creative in identifying mechanisms to allow student workers to work remotely with the provision that appropriate duties can be assigned and that the department has mechanisms in place to monitor that work.
Student workers should contact their supervisor regarding their ability to work. Students feeling ill should not come to work and should self-monitor and seek medical care if needed. Students not ill and not wishing to work in person will not be required to do so and will continue to be paid only if remote work is a possibility per above and approved by their supervisor. If students are unable to work in person or remotely, the student will not be paid. Departments are encouraged to provide as much flexibility regarding duties as feasible.

Carol A. Fierke
Provost and Executive Vice President
