Kentucky State University appreciates the remarkable efforts and commitment of our faculty and staff to our institutional mission and goals. Beginning the week of March 16, employees who can work remotely will start to do so until further notice. Approaches and timelines may vary across the campus community. This decision aligns with our goal to reduce the number of interactions on campus, slow the rate of transmission, and protect and care for the wellbeing of our community.
Employees should read the University Temporary Telecommuting Policy and complete the Temporary Telecommuting Agreement. All employees should speak directly with their supervisor for guidance.
The situation is changing rapidly, and Human Resources is reviewing and adjusting workforce polices accordingly to address the emerging issues and concerns of our faculty and staff. For HR questions, call (502) 597-6667.
