For Faculty and Staff:

UTogether 2020: Resources for faculty, librarians and staff

Daniels faculty members who wish to return to their offices to conduct their academic work may do so, provided that they continue to adhere to physical distancing guidelines. Faculty members that share an office cannot both occupy it on the same day, and so will need to negotiate a time-sharing agreement and file it with the Business Office (care of Suhara Panthapulakkal).

To support the student experience, the Faculty’s student-facing administrative units will resume on-campus operations. Units that are partially (i.e., on a rotating basis, a portion of the staff will be on campus, Mondays to Fridays) or fully re-opening on campus as of Tuesday, September 8:

  • The Dean’s Office
  • Technology Services
  • Workshops and Building Services
  • Office of the Registrar & Student Services
  • Business Services

Message from the Dean

"We work in detail-oriented, labour-intensive fields, and we're all accustomed to pulling long hours and making personal sacrifices to get ahead. But this year, amid a global pandemic, it's more important than ever that we learn to strike a balance between work and other aspects of our lives. If you ever feel as though it's impossible for you to strike that balance, remember that the university is here to support you. Ask for help, and you will receive it."
