This academic year, the WorkLife Office has been exploring the changing world of work. Work has changed significantly over time, including the type of work most of us engage in everyday, the ways in which we complete our tasks, and even the location where we do our jobs.
The summer months on campus often mean fewer parking headaches, shorter lines at our favorite restaurants, and better weather for enjoying nature.

With the ebb and flow of the summer semester, it might be the perfect time to pilot a flexible work arrangement.
