Dear faculty and staff,
Late last week, CIM’s leadership learned that our students will be required to participate in CWRU’s vaccination protocols at the same time that CWRU emailed the information directly to CIM students. Due to the nature of the various shared facilities and services within the CWRU/CIM campus, CIM will work with CWRU to ensure that our students fully engage with the CWRU process.
At the same time, we also learned that some requirements and protocols will also be required for any CIM faculty or staff who must access any CWRU facilities during the fall semester. CIM will manage that process in-house and once we learn more from CWRU and what it will mean for impacted faculty and staff at CIM, we will share that information.
Regardless of CWRU’s protocols, CIM is requiring all CIM faculty, staff and students to notify CIM of their vaccination status by August 6, 2021.
If you haven’t already done so, fully vaccinated individuals should upload their vaccination card to the ADP Self-Service Portal by August 6, 2021. Follow these steps:
Log into ADP at workforcenow.adp.com
- Click Myself – go to Employment – click My Documents
- On the right side of the screen, click Upload
- Once uploaded, select COVID, Vaccination Card as the category
- Note: This process cannot be completed through the ADP app. You must log in to the website.
If you have not been vaccinated or fall into an exemption category, please complete this form by August 6, 2021.
In the meantime, we are sharing the message below, sent to CIM conservatory students this afternoon, so that you are fully aware of what CWRU’s policies are and the expectations for all CIM students.
In addition, as we prepare for the new academic year, we want to remind you of a few additional items.
Charges for parking permits, which are $50 per month for full time employees and $25 per month for part time employees, will resume in August. If you need to make any changes to your vehicle or other information or wish to end a parking permit, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to start a parking permit, please complete the Parking Access Request Form.
CIM is following the current CDC guidance, which states that fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask or physically distance. If you are not fully vaccinated, you should continue to wear a mask and physically distance. Of course, any fully vaccinated person may continue to wear a mask as well. As an open and honest community, this protocol will continue to be managed based on the honor system – faculty and staff (including security) will not have any knowledge of who is or is not vaccinated.
Please be on the lookout in the next weeks for additional updates and be in touch with one of us with any questions in the meantime. We look forward to seeing everyone in person soon.
