Faculty & Staff


We are excited to welcome staff and faculty back to prepare campus for a return to full operations this fall. The information on this website will help guide you in that process. 

Please remember that guidance from national, state and local health officials continues to evolve, which may affect the University‚Äôs decisions and instructions. As we have new information, we will share it with you. 

Return dates

  • Staff: Any staff who have not yet returned to campus should plan to return to pre-pandemic hours and regular operations on campus no later than Tuesday, July 6, in anticipation of a return to full on-campus operations on Monday, Aug. 16. 

  • Faculty: For the fall semester, faculty should be back on campus by the first day of the new academic year, Monday, Aug. 16. 

Accommodations for health conditions

We understand that there may be employees with health conditions that prevent them from returning to campus, and the University will provide appropriate accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Any faculty or staff member who believes they qualify for ADA accommodations should consult with Cindy Edwards, director of employee relations, ckedward@uncc.edu or 704-687-0658.
