American University recognizes the growing demands on staff while at work and the increasing challenges of finding new and better ways of serving students, other customers, and meeting the University's goals. The University supports flex work arrangements to foster a highly desirable and productive work environment that is responsive to these demands and challenges. The University expects that flexible work arrangements will increase retention and recruitment of highly qualified staff, maintain staff productivity, and promote employee engagement.
While not all positions will be amenable to flex work arrangements, consideration of flexible work schedules will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis taking into account the departmental needs and the employee's ability to maintain a high level of service. The University expects that implementation of flex work arrangements will enhance the quantity, quality, and productivity of the employee's level of service. A flex work arrangement must be authorized in advance by an authorized official. Please visit the Flex Work Policy page for more information on how to pursue a flex work arrangement
