Section 3 - Policy

(3) There are a number of principles that guide decisions about staff members' attendance at work:

  1. Students are vital to the University's ongoing success and a student-centred approach is required to ensure the continued strength of the institution.
  2. The University seeks to foster a collaborative approach to work, in which all staff members contribute to the life and responsibilities of a faculty, school, division, section, centre or office. Staff members are expected to participate fully in the collegial activities of their faculty, school, division, section, centre or office, which includes the equitable sharing of campus-based responsibilities.
  3. The University seeks to optimise the use of its resources, including staff, finances and facilities.
  4. Staff members are expected to attend campus for the duration of the working week. A staff member's decision to reside at a distance from their base campus does not release them from this expectation. However, in limited circumstances, alternative arrangements may be approved under the Remote Work Policy, provided such arrangements do not have a significant impact on the work of their colleagues, faculty, school, division, section, centre or office, and are cost neutral for the University.
