Future of Work Committee
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the nature of work at our university in ways that would have been unimaginable previously. We all had to adapt to a primarily virtual university in quick order and have persisted in that arrangement for far longer than many of us expected. One of the questions many of us are asking now as we look ahead to the possibility of a more in-person fall is how our work environments and processes may be changed by the experiences of the past year.
The Provost’s Office and Human Resources are partnering on a new Future of Work committee to consider recommendations for professional staff re-entry at UConn from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as consider more broadly if and how the nature of work at UConn will be changed following more than a year of primarily remote operations.
