Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
We hope all of you are keeping safe during this trying period.

TUC office will remain open as long as the campus is open, though most of our employees have moved towards working remotely. We encourage that most, if not all, requests follow the guidelines below as we try to increase social distancing as recommended by campus and the state.
We encourage employees and supervisors to use this method as soon as possible. If you are not set up on eTime, please reach out to TUC Payroll department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Attached are the guides in using eTime.
