Working Remotely Survey

As we start to plan for a return to campus, some staff are asking if there will be an opportunity to continue to work remotely in the future. Human Resources is leading a working group to explore options and has developed a short survey for staff who have been working remotely full or part time. The information gathered will help identify a principled approach to remote working arrangements in the future. The survey does not apply to faculty.
