The University offers an institutional membership in the caregiving website Care.com to benefits-eligible faculty and staff. It provides eligible employees with premium, unlimited access to Care.com to find child care providers, tutors, errand runners, senior caregivers, pet walkers and sitters, house cleaners and more through the world’s largest network of caregivers.
The Human Resources website has been updated to include supplemental resources from Carebridge to assist our faculty and staff as we all navigate the unique challenges related to COVID-19. In particular, Carebridge is providing resources to support employees and leaders in reducing the risk for illness, tending to the needs of loved ones while remaining focused and productive with work responsibilities.
IT Security Awareness
The changes in work structure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have created more opportunities for hackers and phishers to access the personal data of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. Please be even more vigilant than usual in identifying phishing emails, scams and attempts to gain access to home-based systems. The ITS Information Security Department has some security guidelines to help you keep your home computer, personal data and the data of the University safe from hackers. If you have any questions or feel that you have been the victim of a scam or phishing attack, please contact the Information Security department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Syracuse University Libraries has recently added two important online subscriptions: The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Access is available to all students, faculty and staff with a valid Syracuse University NetID and @syr.edu email address, from which you can establish an online account.

For faculty in need of teaching support, including course design, contact the Center for Teaching and Learning at CTLE@syr.edu.
Effective May 23, 2022, travel for University purposes freely resumed subject to usual approval processes. All travelers must continue to register their travel at http://travelregistry.syr.edu. Faculty and staff travelers are strongly encouraged to plan in advance for the possibility of contracting Covid-19 and the need to isolate with consequent travel disruption.
Departments or units sponsoring student travel MUST have a plan to accommodate any required to isolate or quarantine and be prepared to support the traveler during any confinement. Any costs associated with Covid-19 isolation while travelling are the responsibility of the sponsoring department.
International travel that includes students is subject to the University’s travel safety policy (see: Travel Safety - Policies – Syracuse University). As a reminder, student travel to destinations rated as a Level 3 or 4 by the U.S. State Department is considered high risk and is subject to review by the University. Those with questions about travel safety issues may contact Seth Tucker, Director, Global Safety and Support at email@example.com or 315-443-1968.
Wellness Resources and Opportunities
Faculty and staff are encouraged to remain aware of and engage in Wellness Initiative offerings as their schedules allow.
