Telework

If you have been approved to work a hybrid or remote schedule, or if you are in isolation or quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure but are able to work, please use the resources below.

Video Conference Meetings

USU has directed community members to use online meetings whenever possible to avoid face-to-face opportunities for spreading COVID-19 in the community. 

USU supports Zoom for conducting live meetings and events and Microsoft Teams for employee team work.

  • Zoom: If participants have access to an adequate computer, network, or phone can join from remote locations. 
  • Microsoft Teams: This is a good option for employees working together, but is not recommended or supported for use by faculty for academic/classroom/student communication. Learn more.

Academic and Instructional Service employees and the IT Service Desk are on-hand to assist faculty and staff with the technologies. Contact information can be found on the respective IVC and Zoom websites.
