The guides listed here are designed to help faculty and staff work at home efficiently and effectively. Additionally, they contain information meant to be useful in the event of a campus emergency, such as a pandemic, that closes the physical campus but permits many people to continue working from home.
A brief communications section will help faculty and staff prepare to use alternate forms of electronic communication, if necessary, during a campus emergency.
CIT has developed a companion guide for the Cornell leadership, technology support and emergency planning communities to use in conjunction with its Telecommuting Guide for Cornell Faculty and Staff and the Teaching Remotely and Distance Learning Support Guide for instructors.
Use the questions, resources, and links in this guide to prepare your staff and faculty to work remotely and to prepare for your function to continue if you are unavailable to them during a campus emergency.
Use a special communications section to plan communication strategies that will help your unit continue to function if many people at Cornell are telecommuting and/or campus services are compromised.
