Phase 2 Message from Human Resources

Dear SUNY Canton colleagues,

With the North Country now in Phase 2 of re-opening, the College will begin to phase in additional employees to work on campus. Please remember that your area Vice President/Department Head will be communicating with you when/how you will return to campus. Please do not report to campus until they have asked you to do so.

We have consulted with NY State rules and recommendations as well as local health experts to create guidelines to keep our employees safe as we expand on-campus staffing. The SUNY Canton Guidelines for Returning to Work on Campus outline the responsibilities we all have to help ensure one another’s safety. We ask that you read it thoroughly.

Thank you to the essential workers who have been coming to work on campus throughout the NY On Pause order. You have kept our campus running smoothly, cared for the students that remained on campus, and worked hard to prepare for additional employees to return safely. We truly appreciate your efforts.


Suzan L McDermott
Director, Human Resources
