Safety First. Always.

You play a prominent role at this University. Because as faculty, you are essential to each student's success and the health and safety of our entire UTRGV Family.

Below you’ll find information on what we're doing — and what you should do — to stay safe this semester.

Campus Protocols

There are currently no local, state, or national COVID-19 health mandates that enable UTRGV to require the use of face coverings or COVID-19 vaccines across our entire campus community. However, UTRGV continues to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) latest guidance and encourages the use of face coverings, especially in settings where distancing is not possible.

For more on what UTRGV is currently enforcing and/or recommending to promote your safety, visit the  Protocols page.

Working Arrangements

Please work directly with your supervisor regarding your unique circumstance or contact the Office of Human Resources at hr@utrgv.edu.

Health Services

Your health and well-being are our top priorities. Get top-notch healthcare when you need it, including COVID-19 vaccines and tests, at one of UTRGV’s Employee Health Clinics.

Mental Health & Wellness

While finding time to relax and reset may seem like a fantasy, protecting your mental health is essential to overall wellness. Whether you’re feeling anxious about teaching in person or wondering if the pandemic will ever end, being in tune with yourself can make each day a little better.

Visit our Mental Health & Wellness page for more information on resources that can help guide you toward a greater sense of self.
