What are the policies for working at home for staff and student workers?
All staff members and student workers who can complete 100% of their work remotely should continue to work from home unless instructed otherwise by their direct supervisor and/or department leadership. Only those approved to return to campus are allowed to do so. For now, remote work is encouraged if it can be done successfully to help mitigate against the spread of the coronavirus and for the safety and well-being of our campus community. If you are approved to return due to the nature of your work, you must adhere to the minimum requirements as outlined on the university’s coronavirus website.
For more information regarding employee or family care resources or work and leave options, please visit the Office of Human Resources website.
Can I conduct my research remotely?
Guidance on research is available on the CMU Coronavirus Researcher Resources webpage.
Will doctoral and master’s students still receive their stipends if they work remotely?
We have been actively planning to support your experience in a way that is unique to your special role on campus. It is our intention that any of you receiving stipends and associated support, such as health care insurance premium coverage, will continue to receive that support through the remainder of the semester as you work toward your degree remotely.
