Family Care for COVID-19

The Office of Human Resources is supporting the university's decision to offer temporary child care services due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Based on recommendations from the Family Care Advisory Committee and in response to the recent Temporary Child Care Needs Survey, these services will offer families additional flexibility.

 

For the CMU Community

Members of the Carnegie Mellon community in Pittsburgh can use CareLink to find care givers or find a job. If you need a caregiver, you can post your request on the CareLink website. If you want to provide services, you can post your resume and search available jobs. Community members also can use CareLink to share or exchange services.


Professional Development

The Office of Human Resources (OHR) leverages FocusU to provide on demand training and as a convenient tool to register for and track participation in instructor-led training sessions. FocusU provides access 24/7 access to video clips, online training, books and job aids. To assist the campus community, OHR has curated a listing of online courses focusing on a diverse set of skills and abilities.


Resources for Working Remotely

If your job duties do not allow remote work and you are 60 years old or older, or have an underlying medical condition that may put you at higher risk for complications, you should contact your HR business partner to be counseled on PTO and leave options and process.

Our Mission

The chief purpose of Staff Council is to examine matters related to all staff, and to formulate recommendations to the university administration regarding staff concerns. Staff Council representatives provide advocacy on behalf of all staff members, and contribute to the vibrancy and well‐being of the entire Carnegie Mellon community.
