Faculty and Staff

What you need to know

  • MSU continues to encourage everyone that can work remotely or from home to do so. 
  • If you are on campus, face coverings must be worn (including all faculty, staff, students, vendors and visitors) indoors and outdoors while you are on property owned or governed by MSU and while participating in MSU-related or MSU-sponsored activities. If you have a medical condition that may prevent you from safely wearing a face covering, or you would like a clear face covering, you should contact MSU’s Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities.
  • All employees must fill out a health screening form each day they come to campus to work. MSU IT and the University Physician’s office have created an online campuswide health-screening form that units can use.
  • Human Resources keeps an updated FAQ website for employees, and information on resources for faculty, staff and researchers operating in a virtual setting can be found at remote.msu.edu.
  • For those administrative and academic functions that are deemed necessary to return to campus, a template has been created to help guide them through that process, along with a decision making guide and supporting documents
  • MSU also has prepared a Building Safety Information Plan that serves as the principal safety plan for all buildings on campus. It will be important for each building to share and review the plan with its occupants so that everyone can work together to promote building safety.
  • New, expedited processes for requesting temporary accommodations, flexible work arrangements and teaching adjustments have been created.
  • There is updated guidance on university vehicle occupancy to minimize the potential for transmission of the virus while traveling with a group or other individuals.
