Dear Colleagues,

We hope that your week is progressing well as you continue to recover from Hurricane Irma both at work and at home. We have been delighted to see so many of you back on our campuses, helping to move the University of Miami forward.

We know that all of you have varying levels of recovery. To support you with hurricane recovery, employees will have access to up to 24 hours of personal time specifically for any hurricane recovery needs. This time should be used responsibly to help balance hurricane recovery needs and work obligations. To use the time employees should work with their supervisor and HR partner to process recovery time in the Workday or Kronos timekeeping systems. Click here to review guidelines. If you need additional assistance, please contact your HR Partner.

In addition, in partnership with United Way of Miami-Dade and Ryder System, we’re going to collect non-perishable foods and basic household supplies that can make a difference for families struggling to bounce back. As you return to work, please consider donating at the bins located around both the Coral Gables and Miller School of Medicine Campuses to help rebuild Florida and the Caribbean.

Let’s support one another and work together toward a full recovery.

Thank you for all that you do for the University of Miami.

Warm regards,

Jacqueline A. Travisano, Ed.D
Executive Vice President for Business and
Finance and Chief Operating Officer
