From the President, re: COVID-19: Moving To Telework

March 12, 2020

Dear Campus Community,

In consultation with Governor Lamont’s office, CSCU President Mark Ojakian is today directing campuses to temporarily implement our telework plans beginning today and extending through at least April 5.

That means, while we will remain open, everyone except those necessary to maintain basic campus services will be encouraged to work from home. This will apply not just to our campus, but to all community colleges, state universities, Charter Oak State College, and the CSCU system office.

All supervisors should connect with their staff before the weekend to determine telework plans.  Further information specific to Southern will be forthcoming shortly.

Please continue to practice vigilance and stay healthy.

Sincerely,

Joe Bertolino
President
