Return to On-Campus Work Plan
We developed a COVID-19 Return to On-Campus Work Plan to phase in the return of staff over many weeks in a coordinated process. Our plan ensured appropriate social distancing and availability of PPE, as well as the ability to modify work spaces.
Daily, prior to reporting to work, all employees complete a daily health screening form in an electronic or paper format.

Working at Home
To accommodate the needs of our faculty and staff, employees may submit a request to work from a temporary alternate work location

Please contact Human Resource Services at 518-564-5062 with specific questions.

Trade schools offer training in high-demand, essential careers

Candace Carlton recently earned a massage therapy license. Unfortunately, the past six months have made it tough to put it to use.

“That doesn’t do too well during a pandemic,” Carlton said.

The prospect of going back to school also is challenging, given that school districts, colleges and education centers all over the country are trying to find a way to bring students back safely.

But when it comes to an educational opportunity with generally smaller class sizes, and a chance to learn skills that can be put to work immediately, Carlton and others have begun looking to the region’s trade and technical schools.
