Return to work
UMSL began a phased approach to returning employees to campus in fall 2020 under appropriate guidelines for health and safety. As part of the repopulation effort, each College, School or Division lead crafted individual unit plans to bring back a limited number of employees to focus on critical on-site projects and activities related to student instruction, support services, recruitment and retention as well as sponsored research and scholarship. CSDs have updated their operational plans for fall 2021 to allow the vast majority of employees to return to campus no later than August 1, 2021.
Individuals approved to return to on-site work must follow and comply with university policies and public health and safety expectations while on campus and when conducting university business off campus.
