Sent on behalf of Prof. Dan Morrow, Chair of the COE Return to On-Site Transition Committee:


Dear Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students:


We hope you are staying healthy and safe. This email is intended to clarify and reiterate a few of the main ideas from last Friday's Return to On-site Work: Specific College of Education Guidance email:

  • We recommend faculty, staff, and graduate students not return to work at the College until July 12 at the earliest.

  • If there is a need to return to the College before July 12, contact your department head/chair or unit head for guidance. Research labs and others responsible for space will be required to complete a safety plan.

  • Prior to returning to work at the College, everyone is required to complete the Division of Research Safety COVID-19 Safety training, which takes about 15 minutes.

  • College facilities/buildings include the Education Building, Children's Research Center (CRC) building, and the Green Street (MSTE) space.
  • When in College of Education buildings, remember it is required that you wear a mask and follow signs to maintain social distancing. We understand that not everyone can medically tolerate a mask or has access to a mask. While we will not be regulating or tracking mask use, we ask that everyone works together to ensure the safety of our community. 

  • The College has received suggestions from many people about preparing their individual work spaces for returning to on-site work. Please email facilities@education.illinois.edu with any questions, concerns, or comments about accommodations or safety.

  • Email support@education.illinois.edu should any equipment or technology needs arise, or your direct supervisor with any return to on-site questions.

Thank you for your continued patience as our subcommittees work on recommendations around many critical considerations for returning to non-remote work. Again, we will continue to keep you updated with more specifics throughout the month of June.

Sincerely,

Dan Morrow
Professor, Department of Educational Psychology
