Does the institution offer a telecommute program for employees?:

A brief description of the program:

Telecommuting, is a program under which employees work at a place other than their traditional workplace on specified days and at their primary worksite the remainder of the time, retaining flexibility to meet the needs of the work unit. The telework location may be the employee's home or another suitable location. Employees may use telephones and, in many instances computers, to communicate effectively.

The Chancellor's office supports telework to maximize productive work time, decrease the need for parking and office facilities, reduce energy used for transportation, and decrease traffic congestion, hazards, and air pollution. The Chancellor's office supports telework in situations where it is in the best interest of the University System.
