HR Guidance for Supervisors and Staff

We greatly appreciate the ongoing hard work and dedication of both our faculty and staff to support our students during the most recent events. It is through your work everyday that we support our student’s health, safety and education needs.

In light of events on campus, I have received questions about how staff and supervisors should handle requests regarding accommodations for staff who are concerned about their safety on campus.

After talking with their managers or unit leadership, staff who have questions or concerns related to attendance and staff safety should contact the HR Shared Services Center at 315.443.4042 or

We recognize the impact these events can have on our faculty and staff, particularly those from underrepresented communities. There are many resources available to support campus community members, including:

  • For faculty and staff, assistance is available through Carebridge, the University’s Faculty and Staff Assistance Program. Trained clinicians are available by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be reached at 800.437.0911.
  • For additional support and services, the campus community may contact Hendricks Chapel at 315.443.2901.

Thank you again.
