3) Maintaining critical infrastructure and/or facilities to support remaining campus residents and other essential duties and personnel. 4) Resume normal University operations.

Campus Health and Safety 3. IT Support 4. Human Resources 5. Financial Operations 6. Campus Housing 7. Food Services 8. Maintaining Critical Infrastructure 9. Lecture 10. Research C. Essential Personnel 1. In general, if employees' job duties affect the security, safety, or physical operation of the University (including providing services to students) they may be employed in a position that is considered "essential" during these closings, as defined by Human Resources. 2. Department heads are familiar with the commitments and requirements of their areas of responsibility within the University and are uniquely positioned to make the decision as to who needs to work as an "essential person" during these times. D. Employee Well-being and Support The response to an influenza pandemic will pose substantial physical, personal, social, and emotional challenges to employees of the university. Therefore, it is imperative for the University to provide employee well-being and support. It is unfeasible for the University to operate a university-wide phone

bank because of the increased resources to staff and maintain such a phone bank. For this reason, each department is encouraged to check on the well-being of its employees and to provide support as necessary. Departments are encouraged to monitor the health and emotional status of its employees by any number of mechanisms. These mechanisms may be in the form of (but not limited to) the following: 1. Establishing a calling rotation for employees to check on co-workers. 2. Establishing a departmental Call Center for employees to call in and report well-being status. E. Business Continuity (UNDER DEVELOPMENT) 1. Business Continuity planning is critical before an influenza pandemic. Maintaining business continuity will mitigate disruptions to critical services and infrastructure caused by pandemic influenza. As well as these mitigating disruptions, Business Continuity planning enhances the recovery efforts caused by pandemic influenza. 2. Services critical to university operations are financial services, human resources, safety and security, medical services, food services, educational services, etc. Critical infrastructure, being the infrastructure essential to providing critical services, includes utilities, water, information technology, telecommunications, road services, etc. 3. To maintain Business Continuity, departments will identify essential services or duties and who they serve to maintain University operations. After developing a written list of essential duties and services, each department will determine essential personnel to perform these duties.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
