The efforts of dedicated Brown employees are essential for supporting the University’s mission of teaching and scholarship.
Brown’s telecommuting status, which began on March 16, has been extended through May 1. Brown remains open, only essential personnel should report to work in person, and all other employees who can telecommute are expected to do so. All employees will continue to be paid.
The only faculty or staff who should be working on site at their Brown work locations are those whose work has been deemed essential and can only be performed on campus. Faculty require permission from the Office of the Provost, and staff require permission from their managers.
For security during this telecommuting period, doors for all Brown buildings will remain locked at all times, accessible only by individuals with existing card or key access.
Additional details, including on enhancements to workplace policies to address the impact of COVID-19 (such as paid special leave measures) are available on the Workforce page.
