The Future of Work@Iowa project set out to reimagine how and where University of Iowa employees work after COVID-19. It has focused largely on understanding the long-term potential for remote and hybrid work, flexible schedules, and other types of work arrangements.

In summer 2021, the Future of Work team released its full report with recommendations for managing work arrangements. The report built on preliminary guidelines released in March 2021.

A pilot flexible-work pilot project began in fall 2021 and runs through June 30, 2022. A final report summarizes findings from the pilot and offers recommendations for work arrangements developed after July 1, 2022.

New: Pilot Findings and Recommendations Available

The university's flexible-work pilot project runs through June 30, 2022. But pilot-project findings and forward-looking recommendations for flexible work are now available.
