Campus Public Safety has started to open up more access for students, faculty and staff to buildings on the Burnaby Campus. Alert us to areas where we need doors unlocked and more washroom capacity.
We will be offering a series of Return to Campus Information Sessions over the summer to support academic leaders, managers and supervisors as they transition their teams back to campuses in July and August.
Communicable Disease Plan
An institution-wide Communicable Disease Plan was adopted on July 21, 2021, to replace all unit-specific safety plans. Visit the SRS website to find out how you can transition your safety plan over the summer.
HR has developed a number of tools and resources to help leaders transition their teams back to campus including step-by-step guides, change management tools, a staffing plan tool and more.
Health and wellbeing
SFU offers a number of resources to support your health and well-being including crisis intervention and suicide prevention, counselling, coaching, online resources, training, apps and more.
In-person meetings and events of up to 50 people are permitted with students, faculty and staff inside and outside. In-person meetings and events with external community members and the public require special permission. Contact Meetings, Events and Conference Services for more info.
Whether you are a faculty member, instructor, teaching-support staff member or academic unit, the Centre for Educational Excellence (CEE) has tools and resources available to support in-class and remote learning.
Guidance about in-person research as it relates to SFU’s recovery has been mapped out on the Research page of this site.
