Commencement/Graduation

The virtual ceremony was held to recognize all Campbell undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.  Although degrees will be conferred during this virtual ceremony, the University remains committed to hosting an in-person ceremony to allow students to actively participate and families to celebrate at a yet to be determined time when public health guidelines allow. Learn more >

Faculty & staff updates

Updated Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Work Scheduling

  • If an employee can work from home, then they are encouraged to do so. Department heads will be held responsible for business continuity. 

  • If employees have a position that is isolated, such as a grounds person or a position that must come on campus such as a health center employee, then they should work as needed using social distancing and other CDC precautions. Again, department heads are responsible for business continuity.

  • If an employee cannot work due to personal illness, is under quarantine as a result of an immediate family member’s illness, or other valid reason, pay will continue as normal (as defined by the sick or vacation leave policies in the Campbell University Personnel Manual).

  • Effective March 25, 2020, all non-exempt (hourly) employees who have been approved to work remotely either entirely or partially, must complete and submit a timesheet to their supervisor on a weekly basis.  Employees working both at home and on campus must also complete the timesheet.  Do not use the time clock when working on campus and a timesheet while working remotely, as it will be more difficult for Kronos timekeepers to input time. The timesheet is designed for a two-week period for flexibility, but it must be submitted on a weekly basis in order for Kronos timekeepers to enter hours.
  • If an employee is sick, presenting symptoms, or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive, do not come to work. 

  • Employees should follow proper healthcare guidelines related to COVID-19 and consult with their direct supervisors regarding any illness or absences.
