Process and Resources
With the exciting growth of Kennesaw State University, a taskforce was created to identify innovative office solutions that maximize campus resources. Through the work of the committee, we learned remote workspace options are preferable to some faculty, so the Faculty Flex Workspace Program was established.
The program is managed at the college level to ensure each individual college’s goals are met and to provide a positive experience for participants. Because each discipline is very different, not all faculty will be eligible to participate.
Step 1 : Request to participate by completing the Program Participation Request
Step 2: The form will route to your college for approval
Step 3: If approved, work with your college to procure any equipment needed
Step 4: Complete the Take Technology Home Approval Form to document the location of your University-owned assets
Note: Participation in the program is subject to change based on the needs of participants or the college.
On-Campus Workspace Options
For faculty who do not have a dedicated office, there are several places to work while on campus. Please ask your home department about spaces available in your college. On the Kennesaw campus there is an interdisciplinary faculty hoteling space located on the 3rd floor of the Academic Learning Center. We are actively working on identifying a similar faculty hoteling area on the Marietta campus. We expect this to be open by Fall 2023 semester. In addition, faculty can use KSU’s Event Management System (EMS) to book space to conduct a private meeting.Book a Simple Meeting
- Faculty are issued one set of equipment when they begin working at KSU; either a PC or a Mac bundle that includes a monitor, a keyboard and mouse.
- If other equipment is needed to effectively work from home, simply log into the UITS
service portal to request each item:
- Service Portal - KSU Self-Service Portal (service-now.com)
- Click on Service Request
- Click on Approved IT Equipment to find a detailed list of approved IT equipment, with pricing and item descriptions.
- If an item is not on the approved list, simply follow the standard process of requesting UITS approval. Once approved, the equipment can be ordered.
- Faculty members that are approved to work from home should complete the “Take Technology Home Approval Form”.
Are all faculty eligible to participate in this program?
Eligibility is approved at the college level and will vary by discipline and the operational needs of the college. Please reach out to your department chair to confirm your eligibility.
If I participate in this program, but later decide to opt out, will I have an office on campus?
Faculty can choose to opt out of the program at any time. Likewise, the college may discontinue faculty participation in the program at any time. In either case, the college will work with Facilities to identify office space on campus.
If I participate in this program, can I choose to teach online sections, so I am fully remote?
Participation in the program will not impact instructional modality, workload or schedule. Participating faculty will still be required to be on campus, as needed, by their respective department and college.
Can I request equipment for both my remote workspace and my on-campus workspace?
Faculty are issued one set of computer equipment when they begin working at KSU. Any additional office equipment needed to effectively work remotely should be reviewed by the college. All assigned equipment remains the property of the University.
Is there financial compensation for participating in this program?
This program is voluntary and there is no compensation for participation. All assigned equipment remains the property of the University.
