COVID-19 Information

We are in unprecedented times with so much uncertainty and ever-changing scenarios. Supervisors and managers are in a unique situation to lead, encourage, and navigate through the unknown.  We want you to know that you are not alone. Included on this site are FAQs and additional resources to provide guidance and support to our supervisors and managers. The focus of these pages are on managing while we continue to work remotely and to provide guidance for our transition back to campus. 

If you have suggestions, comments, or questions, please contact a member of the Supervisor Support Team or email

The FAQ's are broken down in three main categories:
