President Khator sent an e-mail on April 30 about opening the campus for research starting Tuesday, May 5. This will allow researchers to return to campus to conduct research. We developed an Access Request Form that is available through the Reopening Research page. There are three conditions that must be met: (1) Anyone working on campus will be required to complete a training module that can be found on AccessUH. (2) Anyone working on campus will be required to pass a self-health screening test that can be found on AccessUH. (3) Anyone working on campus is expected to cooperate with contact tracing. The details of how to request access and what the guidelines are that must be followed are on our Reopening Research page.
We will continue to share current guidance and assure you of our support. We continue to monitor federal agencies and note that there are changes emerging almost every day. We will also continue to send a biweekly letter to the research faculty (see the Additional Resources page for past letters) and provide weekly updates in our Inside Research newsletter. This website will be reviewed daily by DOR staff and updated as new information becomes available.
