UHSP seeks to have a campus and workplace culture that is highly effective toward meeting the institution’s goals while being sensitive to the needs of faculty, staff and students. In the right circumstances, remote work can improve flexibility and work-life balance while potentially improving productivity.

Faculty have routinely operated with latitude to complete certain types of work away from the physical campus. This document presents guidelines that apply to faculty now in a concise document to ensure that critical institutional needs around data security, risk and compliance are met while recognizing that individual faculty should rely on department or college rules regarding when they need to be on campus. Department chairs are expected to work closely with faculty regarding what type of work can be done remotely, or off-campus, and what work must be completed on-campus.

Work off campus for the University must still comply with federal, state and local laws, as well as University policies that apply to employees at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis. This includes, but is not limited to, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
