Guidance For Staff On Measures To Preserve Business Continuity

This page is intended for non-teaching Staff of CGU. It is a resource guide to address the challenges and provide potential solutions for continuing work while the campus is closed. As epidemic outbreaks, natural disasters, or other unexpected events can disrupt scheduled courses, the tools and strategies described here can minimize the effects of those unexpected situations.

Best practices for working remotely include live or synchronous communication and meeting, where you meet and communicate remotely through email, chat, video conference, and other options. Other options for working remotely include asynchronous activities like file shares, Dropbox, and other cloud options or other possibilities.

Two important measures you can take to prepare yourself involve becoming familiar with the use of two key technologies:

  • Office 365 – The main administrative set of tools to conduct business
  • Microsoft Teams – Online Collaboration and Video Conferencing Tool

Please remember, protecting data, especially student data, is paramount to what we do as University Employees. This can be be particularly easy to forget in a remote environment. Please take a moment to review CGU’s FERPA statement
