Flexible/Telecommuting Work Arrangements

Kent State is a residential and in-person living and learning university. As such, most employees will be working in person at their on-campus work site. Where feasible, Kent State strives to support the health and work/life balance for its faculty and staff. Most recently, Kent State has approved two important policies, the Administrative Policy Regarding Flexible Work Arrangements, see policy 3342-6-01.2, and an Administrative Policy Regarding Telecommuting, see policy 3342-6-01.3.

For more information regarding the flexible work arrangements and telecommuting policies, please see below.

Please remember that summer telecommuting and summer work from home arrangements conclude August 5, 2022. For more information, click here.
