Return to Campus Workplace: COVID-19 Response 

SU will phase in a return of our workforce over time in a coordinated process to ensure appropriate physical distancing, availability of PPE (personal protective equipment), hygiene protocols, symptom screening, testing capabilities for COVID-19, and contact tracing.  

SU will assess expanded staffing based on mission-critical operations, the ability to control and manage specific work environments, and the necessity to access on-site resources. These decisions, once approved, will be communicated through your respective dean, vice president or vice provost.  All members of the SU community will be given advance notice of when they will be expected to return to work on campus.  No one should report to work on campus unless and until they have been explicitly cleared to do so by their school or department leadership. 

The need to reduce the number of people on campus to meet physical distancing requirements will continue for some time. Groups that can continue to work remotely effectively will likely continue to do so until restrictions are eased for larger gatherings.  

The repopulation of our campus will be tightly controlled and coordinated to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of faculty and staff, as well as the communities we serve. No area or department should increase staffing levels beyond current needs to support critical on-site operations without approval from your respective dean, vice president, or vice provost. Once decisions to expand on-site staffing in certain areas have been made, our workforce should follow the policies and protocols detailed in this guide for returning to work on campus.  

As staffing on-site increases and operations expand, officials will closely monitor and assess the potential spread of the virus, as well as existing policies and procedures to mitigate it. If localized outbreaks emerge, tighter restrictions and reduced on-campus staffing may need to be implemented again.  

Notice of Compassion:

Seattle University is an inclusive community, and we deeply value the diversity of our community. We are committed to fostering a community that not only values diversity, but also models the principles of inclusive excellence throughout the university. To that end, it is critical that we equip ourselves with facts and each take on the responsibility of dismantling the myths and stigmas that have resulted in rampant ignorance and discrimination. And while we’ve not received any reports of harassment or discrimination on campus related to COVID-19, it is essential that we continue to share accurate information during this time of heightened concern. We must stay committed to our Jesuit values of inclusion, respect and care for the whole person. Important facts to know:

  • COVID-19 does not recognize race, nationality or ethnicity.
  • Wearing a mask does not mean a person is ill.
  • You can interrupt stigma by sharing accurate information.
  • Speak up if you hear, see or read misinformation or witness or experience harassment or discrimination.
  • As always, you may report concerns of discrimination to the Office of Institutional Equity (206-296-2824; oie@seattleu.edu).
