Information for Staff
The Graduate Center deeply appreciates the dedication and adaptability of its staff who have sustained our operation during this unprecedented time. The health and well-being of our employees are of paramount importance. Working together, we will create a safe and supportive community and fulfill The Graduate Center’s educational and research mission.
Staff and faculty who are working remotely should continue to do so unless informed otherwise.
Faculty and staff who need to return our 365 Fifth Avenue campus must follow our Building Entry Policy. The Advanced Science Research Center has separate facility entry policies. Information about the ventilation systems can be found on the Facilities Information page.
In order to operate essential services safely and in accordance with state and federal guidelines, The Graduate Center has implemented modified work arrangements and telecommuting plans. Telecommuting guidelines were established to assist employees and supervisors memorialize telecommuting plans established in response to COVID-19.
At this time, all staff who are currently working remotely, should continue to do so until there is official approval to return to campus.
The Graduate Center is taking steps to create campus-specific recommendations for returning to on-site work. We are establishing a task force that will be charged with making recommendations in the following areas: campus preparedness and safety; student learning, life, and success; staff relations and wellness; and communications.
The Professional Development and Learning Management Office (PDLM) at CUNY Central Office is providing employees with LinkedIn Learning accounts on a first come, first serve basis for a limited time so that employees can continue their professional development.
