This Month's Spotlight

As many staff members return to in-person work on July 12th, it's important to know about options for flexible work arrangements. People & Culture has compiled a toolkit to help both non-supervisory and supervisory staff understand their roles and responsibilities in establishing hybrid work environments.  Following are some highlights for how flexible work arrangements benefit DEIB efforts and the university as a whole:
