Q&As from the town hall
Answers to questions employees posed before and during the April 15 town hall can be found here. Depending on your question, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Strategic Plan feedback welcome
Employees are invited to share their thoughts about the draft vision, mission and values for the new University Strategic Plan. Visit mru.ca/strategy to view and provide your input.
Use Google Meet for spring classes
With the coming Spring Semester, faculty are reminded to use Google Meet, not Zoom, for online teaching. Google Meet and Chat comply with all of MRU's security requirements and provincial privacy legislation, unlike Zoom. The ADC and ITS are available for support.
Boosting local alumni businesses
Alumni Relations is joining in the #BuyLocalYYC campaign to support local alumni entrepreneurs. Discover and boost alumni businesses through our new online directory here.
New leave provisions during slowdown of operations
Given reduced operations as a result of the pandemic, some MRSA members will receive notice to take an unpaid Furlough Leave of approximately four months. Additionally, employees in any employee group can request an unpaid leave of absence from their supervisor. A Q&A can be found here.
Preventing outdoor gatherings on campus
People are asked to not gather in parking lots or other outdoor areas. To reinforce this only Lot 2 at the West Gate entrance will be accessible during weekdays and weekends. The East Gate parkade will be accessible Monday to Friday only. All other lots will be closed until further notice. As well, the tennis courts and fields are closed and signage reminding people to physically distance will be placed around campus.
Reminder of limited access to campus buildings
Campus buildings are not open to the public, other than those going to the Wyckham Pharmacy or Health Services Clinic, as well as emergency appointments at the Optimal Therapy Clinic. ED, EC and the second to fourth floors of EL are closed. Only the first floor of the Library (EL) will reopen to students registered in spring semester beginning May 4; however students and employees are asked to not come to campus unless necessary. OneCards are needed to enter through limited entrances or by using intercoms at the East and West Gate entrances. Buildings are closed on weekends and open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
