Remote Work Arrangements (RWAs)

At Memorial we are committed to our people and to fostering a culture of care and well-being; this was identified within the university’s strategic plan, Transforming Our Horizons.

Key to this commitment is supporting each other and ensuring a healthy work environment where employees have the supports they need to thrive, and where the talents and ideas of employees help the university move forward and grow in innovative and responsive ways.

Memorial’s Guidelines for Remote Work Arrangements for non-academic employees on all campuses took effect on Aug. 29, 2022. These guidelines, originally in place for one year, have been extended until March 29, 2024.

For details, please consult the Guidelines for Remote Work document linked below or access the FAQs.  

Forms for remote work arrangements (RWAs), including the application form, are available in the portal under the section titled "Remote Work."   

Applications for RWAs are reviewed by units as time and resources permit.

These guidelines may change as the university refines its remote work approach. These are guidelines and not a policy. Feedback and information collected will help inform policy considerations.
