Flexible Work Philosophy

To allow flexibility for our employees while still ensuring student success, creating a vibrant campus, and a sense of community where our students and employees thrive. 

Not all requests for a flexible work arrangement can be approved due to the nature of the job. Decisions should be based upon whether or not an employee’s responsibilities can be performed from a home or remote location and/or whether or not the employee’s job can be successfully performed with a different work schedule.

Factors to consider:        

  • Student needs    
  • Needs of the department or unit  
  • Needs of the employee
  • Employee’s work duties and the ability to measure or assess work performed  
  • Availability of needed equipment     
  • Measurable objectives and results mutually agreed to by the employee and the supervisor

Flexible Work Arrangement Options:


An employee’s normal, off-campus work location.  The Flexplace arrangement allows employees to work from home or another remote location, for a specified number of hours per week, and/or a pre-determined duration.  


Allows for flexible scheduling arrangements that permit variations in start and finish times but does not alter the total number of hours worked in a workweek. 


Employees requesting to have a flexible work arrangement must discuss the matter with their supervisor and propose a specific arrangement using the Flexible Work Arrangement Form. The supervisor should then consult with the department head/dean prior to sending it to HR for final approval.
