Faculty and Staff

In addition to all the details that appear in the UMPI Safe Return plan, we want to make sure you’re aware of the following:

  • Testing and Vaccine information

    Testing and Vaccine information. UMPI will be conducting weekly COVID-19 asymptomatic testing for all campus community members who are not yet vaccinated and have in-person, on-campus experiences. Others are encouraged to take part in voluntary weekly testing. Those who have had a positive COVID-19 test recently and have completed their isolation are exempt from testing for the 90 days following the date they received a positive test; documentation must be shown to be exempted from the testing.

  • Returning to work

    UMPI began return to work efforts in early July. Currently, employees are working in the office, from home, or in a hybrid situation, as approved by supervisors.

  • Teaching Resources

    The Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting flexible teaching workshop events. In addition, here are a few resources that can help in planning efforts for flexible teaching:

    • Planning for the Unplanned, which offers a refresher on alternate and more flexible delivery methods.
    • Designing for Online Instruction, which digs a little deeper into the how-to of presenting online information more effectively and supporting web-based communications.
    • Brightspace page, which provides an overview of resources to get up and running with UMPI’s new learning platform.
  • Travel for professional development

    Travel for professional development. While work-related travel should still be approached thoughtfully, some work-related travel may be acceptable. Please work with your supervisor and consider the system guidelines posted here:https://www.maine.edu/health-advisory/community-guidance/travelers/

  • Mailroom

    The UMPI Mailroom has been maintaining modified hours. The current hours of the mailroom are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for pick-up and drop-off. We will adjust the hours of operation in accordance with campus opening procedures.

  • UMPI COVID-19 Statement

    The University has established a COVID-19 Statement, adapted from a statement by the University of Maine System Scientific Advisory Board, to provide important guidance to our campus community about COVID-19 safety protocols and contingency plans for in-person classrooms. As noted in the statement, it is imperative for everyone to abide by UMPI’s safety protocols and guidelines in order to ensure the safety of our campus. Please take time to read the full statement by clicking on the button below.

Despite efforts to minimize risks, the University cannot categorically guarantee that any person entering University campuses or facilities will not contract COVID-19 or any other communicable disease and any such person must assess and accept the risks of illness or injury for themselves.
