Dear Colleagues

Video message now available to all staff

Following my email and video message to you all last week, some of you have asked about sharing the video with team members. I can confirm that the video has been made available to all staff and students from today; and is also featuring on the Insite home page carousel. I would be very grateful if you could make your team members aware of the video so that we ensure that the community remains updated on the current University plan. As previously emphasised, we all can achieve this plan if we work together and to ensure that we become much stronger as a community.

Campus Reopening Working Group

I am aware that many of you are concerned and eager to develop plans as to when and how you will reopen your departments in the coming weeks and some of you may have already started working on plans. I ask that you pause this type of activity as there is a Campus Reopening Working Group, reporting in to the Business Continuity and Recovery Programme Board, who are developing an institution-wide campus reopening project plan. Advice will be issued over the forthcoming weeks from this Group and it is essential that this is followed, as it will enable us to re-open our spaces in a planned and safe way, meeting the required “Covid-19 Secure” standards.

Best wishes, Stuart

Professor Stuart Croft
