Notre Dame faculty and staff are working together again, in person.
As of Monday, Aug. 2, staff members who have worked remotely during the pandemic are back on campus. Some will be here every day and others will take part in a hybrid pilot program, working from home and on campus.
When you are on campus, look for NDWorks Quarterly, a newspaper for faculty and staff. The eight-page August/September issue is about what to expect as we navigate a new normal of working on campus. If you could use some help making the transition, you’ll find resources in NDWorks Quarterly via QR codes. Point your smartphone camera at the QR code and click on the notification to see additional content online.

A couple of years ago, NDWorks was exclusively a print publication, published up to 11 times a year. Inspired by faculty and staff feedback that asked for more sustainable practices, Internal Communications,which produces NDWorks, committed to printing fewer copies and printing less frequently, down to six times a year.
In July 2019, the office introduced the e-newsletter NDWorks Weekly. When the pandemic was declared months later, the office suspended print because there were fewer people on campus. The hiatus from print allowed Internal Communications the time to better differentiate the e-newsletter from the newspaper and reimagine the purpose of the printed piece.
NDWorks Quarterly, printed twice a semester, complements NDWorks Weekly, but the content will not be repeated. The weekly e-newsletter will include time-sensitive information, while the quarterly newspaper will be more thematic.
If you have trouble finding NDWorks Quarterly, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and Internal Communications will make sure to get it to you. Don’t forget: Newsprint is recyclable!
