Fully Remote Work

Tulane is a vibrant residential campus that thrives on the in-person experience. The majority of our employees likely need to be onsite to support this environment. However, certain positions may need to be fully remote based on a couple of different factors. 

Some positions are difficult to recruit for and require highly skilled individuals. Depending on the role, these positions may not need to be onsite to perform their duties. Departments, in consultation with talent acquisition, determine if there is a need to have the position designated as remote to fill the applicant pool with the skill level needed for the role. 

What is Fully Remote Work?

Fully remote work is an alternative work option where an employee’s official work location is off-site regularly. Still, they may be required to come onto campus for meetings or other activities. Fully remote work is offered on a limited basis, and approval for remote positions is reserved for roles requiring highly specialized positions or where local talent is not readily available.  

What is the Review and Approval Process for Fully Remote Work?

Additional approvals are as follows: 

  • Supervisor reviews and approves or denies request from employee and routes for additional approval described below.
