While many Duke faculty and staff are working remotely, others are continuing to report and serve students, patients, and vital research operations. Each day the pandemic presents new challenges that faculty and staff continue to rise and meet as Duke seeks ways to help support employees during this time to make life slightly less challenging.
To that end, Duke will suspend all faculty and staff parking permit fee deductions from paychecks issued April through June.
Existing permits will remain active and valid for access to assigned lots and parking facilities. Permits requirements and parking facility restrictions will continue unchanged during this period.
"We hope this measure provides some financial flexibility for individuals who have had to make accommodations to address personal or childcare needs to continue to support our vital work at Duke or those who have had to make adjustments to work remotely," said Kyle J. Cavanaugh, Vice President for Administration and Emergency Coordinator.
