Resumption of curtailed research operations will occur in alignment with applicable state, national, and regional guidelines and as determined by university leadership. Until all restrictions are lifted, only personnel with a need to access physical locations to advance research and creative works should be on-site. These guidelines are in addition to the protocols published in Bringing Back the Pack (https://bringbackthepack.unm.edu/worksite-protocols/index.html), released by the UNM Office of President (5/22/2020).
Vulnerable individuals (as defined by the CDC) should consider carefully their own health concerns, and consult with their supervisor/chair to address these concerns. For confidential issues related to underlying health issues or ADA concerns, individuals may consult with OEO. Students are able to opt-out of on-campus research activities if they feel unsafe and should speak with their advisor’s/PI’s supervisor, and/or use an anonymous tip-line (e.g., EthicsPoint) if they feel pressured to return.
