Return to Campus Update

April 22, 2021

Colleagues,

As we move toward an in-person fall semester for our students, we want to clarify the expectations of where our employees will work. The UTHSC administration is allowing each supervisor and/or department head to determine whether their employees:

  • Return to full-time, in-office work on campus (or another designated location)
  • Maintain a hybrid schedule (combination of working some days on campus + some days remote)
  • Continue to fully work remote

Since the return to in-office work may look different in each department, we are relying on our supervisors to provide guidance and proper protocols to ensure day-to-day workplace practices that keep us all safe and productive.

Please note that all employees working on campus are still required to wear masks, practice proper social distancing, and receive temperature screenings, regardless of whether or not they have been vaccinated.

Employees should direct questions regarding work schedules to their immediate supervisor. Supervisors, if you have any questions or concerns regarding work schedules, please contact Human Resources at hr@uthsc.edu or 901.448.5600.
