For UGA Supervisors

As a follow up to the Return to Campus Guidelines for Faculty and Staff, the initial training module for supervisors is now available for completion by all supervisors in the UGA Professional Education Portal (PEP). The supervisors training module includes information on how supervisors can evaluate their specific work environments, using a risk assessment tool and specific examples included in the training module, to help prepare for a safe and healthy return to campus in their respective departments and units.

This training is required for all supervisors who will be returning to campus and should be completed as soon as possible and no later than June 30, 2020. Vice Presidents, Deans, Department Heads and Directors should determine those supervisors (including administrative faculty) who are required to complete the supervisors training module and ensure that the supervisors under their purview complete the training as soon as possible.
