Information for Staff
Last updated: October 21, 2020 at 1:18 PM
Brandeis staff operate and manage an academic enterprise and physical plant akin to a small city. Staff work touches every aspect of campus life.
As some staff have returned to campus, and as others continue to work remotely, workspaces and interactions are different from what they were before the COVID-19 pandemic. Students, faculty and staff are expected to adhere to required health and safety guidelines established by the university and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. How that work is accomplished may change over time, perhaps rapidly. Brandeis staff's commitment to the university and to each other will not.
