Latest message from Lori Southwood, Chief Human Resources Officer - March 23, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

Following President Vaidya’s message this afternoon, we are moving quickly to help you and your departments transition to a virtual campus operation effective Thursday, March 26, 2020.

For the health and safety of our campus community, most in-person activity will cease by the close of business on Wednesday, and we will continue our operations remotely to support our faculty and staff and to meet the needs of our students.

To help ease this transition over the next two days, we are asking supervisors to:

  • Immediately begin phasing out their department’s on-campus presence.
  • Schedule staggered times for employees to retrieve anything from their offices that they will need for work over the next several weeks. Ask everyone to take home their plants and clean out refrigerators. 
  • Determine procedures for collecting and distributing department mail. While the mail room will maintain a daily presence on campus, delivery and collection from each office will stop.
  • Set up a plan for how you will connect with each other remotely. The IT website has helpful information and resources.    READ MORE ... 
The responses below outline NKU’s current policies and procedures. As the situation continues to evolve, Human Resources is reviewing any impacted policies and procedures and will share updates with any revisions.
