Faculty and Staff: Working on Campus

Last updated: August 27, 2020

The nuances of each workspace required that each team build plans rooted in the five guiding principles of the University’s return to campus. These plans were focused on creating environments where employees, students, and guests can feel confident about their presence in the space.

What You Can Expect:

  • Each functional area on campus has devised an operational plan to reduce the risk to faculty and staff and ensure effective ongoing operations, using the five Caring Well. Staying Well. protocols
  • Campus employees are required to wear a facial covering.
  • Employees are expected to conduct a daily personal wellness check.
  • In some cases, members of the Cedarville community may be especially vulnerable to sickness, due to age or preexisting health conditions, for example. We are sensitive to their unique needs and allow alternatives to keep them safe. For specific concerns or questions, employees should contact leadership within their Division.
  • While in-person instructions is our priority as much as possible, for those faculty members who need to teach online in the fall due to underlying health concerns or age, we are following CDC recommendations in these cases and making every effort to protect our faculty. In some cases, faculty need to teach remotely, and courses are offered in an online format. Faculty with health concerns may work from home on days with no classes, meet with students and advise via Zoom, and can require masks in their classrooms.

For those employees who are unable to work on campus due to health concerns, Working Remotely resources are available.
