Sick days should be used when needed

Staying well while working from home

A joint message from Human Resources and Occupational Health posted on Daily Bulletin May 19

Many of us are working from home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For some of us, working from home is a new experience. For those of us who have children at home, this adds another layer of complexity. It goes without saying that these are different times, which require new routines.

Combined approach for fall term learning

From the Office of the President, Feridun Hamdullahpur


It is now nine weeks since we took unprecedented steps to move our University to remote learning and working. Today, I am writing to share details of our plan to come back to campus when conditions allow.

As I have said many times, COVID-19 has created extraordinary challenges for everyone. I am so proud of your response to these challenges and how we have come together to make sure we give our students the academic experience they deserve.

I've always built things with my hands, I enjoy watching piles of stuff becoming a thing that creates a solution. in 2012 I was lucky enough to buy a house with a 600-square-foot shop space in the backyard, I spent the first year rebuilding that shop, then officially opened G&G Carpentry.
