Faculty & staff resources

Investigates reports of environmental concerns, such as classroom and laboratory air quality and mold in campus buildings; issues required food stand permits and food safety guidelines to registered student organizations operating temporary food stands in campus locations; performs biohazard containment testing and maintenance in research facilities.
UHS does not provide excuses for short-term absences from class or missed deadlines due to acute illness or mental health appointment. This long-standing policy helps us direct our finite resources toward patient care and reflects our respect for students’ privacy. We strongly encourage students to communicate promptly with their instructors if illness interferes with their academic work and to determine what their responsibilities are under those circumstances.
UHS coordinates the employee flu shot program offered in the fall semester. UW employees are notified by email when the clinics have been scheduled at locations around campus.
