Return to Work Task Force

While the University is considering the overall return-to-campus framework for the institution, the Faculty of Engineering understands that there will be unique considerations for our own students, faculty members and staff.

In preparation for the Fall, the Faculty of Engineering has formed two working groups: A Virtual Teaching and Learning Task Force and an Engineering Future of Work Task Force.

Each group, composed of staff, faculty members and students, has been charged with considering factors in the immediate term — return to campus this Fall — and long-term — what positive learnings from the pandemic can be applied to teaching and learning and how we work. These groups have each prepared a report outlining guiding principles and best practices to help steer us through this return-to-campus transition period and help us to set the stage for potential longer-term changes.
