Currently, the University remains open for normal administrative operations.
It is important to note that Salve Regina is temporarily moving to an alternative form of operation, not closing campus or shutting down. While the University will make every effort to be flexible, some employees will be needed on campus to support ongoing operations. As this situation unfolds, core responsibilities for some positions may need to change to meet the needs of the University.
Temporary Telecommuting Policy
Based on the latest information and guidance from the state of Rhode Island, Salve Regina has extended its temporary telecommuting policy through Friday, May 8. All employees that can work from home are expected to do so.
Please work with your supervisor to determine if a telecommuting arrangement is possible. If telecommuting is an option, sign the required terms and conditions of temporary telecommuting and complete the telecommuting agreement. Email both forms to the Office of Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need assistance completing these documents, please consult with your supervisor or contact Human Resources.
Please know that working remotely is expected to be short-term, and Salve Regina will continue to monitor guidance from health officials and the need for such arrangements. Employees should not assume any specified period of time for temporary remote work arrangements, and Salve Regina may require employees to return to regular, on-campus work at any time in conjunction with the Rhode Island Department of Health and other state or federal agencies.
The Office of Information Technology is available to address any technical concerns associated with telecommuting. Using personal computers or laptops for University business is generally discouraged with the exception of Office 365 and/or Canvas LMS, which can be accessed securely using an up-to-date browser (Google Chrome preferred) from any computer with internet access.
Requests for University-configured loaner computers can be made with supervisor approval through the Technology Services Center at email@example.com.
