Mount Holyoke College
Opening the Gates


Mount Holyoke is committed to the health and safety of all community members and recognizes the dedication and commitment of its employees. Information about resources and other College support can be found in the Human Resources section of my.mtholyoke.

Employees’ return to campus

The College is pleased to pilot a flexible and adaptive work model for staff employees this fall. While specific arrangements will be customized for each position, department and/or division, the intent of the pilot is to facilitate healthy integration of work and personal responsibilities while supporting Mount Holyoke’s mission, culture and operational requirements as a small, residential liberal arts college. Supervisors have received tools to assist them in planning; the documents will be published to my.mtholyoke. Staff employees with questions about their specific situation and/or their department’s approach should contact their supervisor, department manager or division head.

Business travel

Unvaccinated employees that travel outside Massachusetts must follow MA Department of Public Health and CDC travel guidelines, including getting a viral test one to three days before their trip, getting a viral test three to five days after traveling and quarantining for a full seven days upon their return, even if the test result is negative. If unvaccinated individuals choose not to get tested after traveling, they must quarantine for a full 10 days.
