University Human Resources and the Office of the Provost established the Future of Work@Iowa project to address these questions:
- How does the disruptive change of COVID-19 impact the University of Iowa and our strategic path towards being a destination university?
- How do we reimagine work post COVID-19?
- How do we re-envision high impact practices to create a highly engaged and inclusive workforce?
- What does the evolution of HR policies, services and strategies look like?
The project tapped five subcommittees to explore specific needs:
- Faculty and Instructors
- Health care
- Physical space
