Culture and Compliance

HR Learning and Organization Development (L&OD) manages several campus-wide faculty/staff online educational programs. Learners enrolled in those programs can find support and FAQs here, and managers can find reports for tracking completion in those programs.

COVID-19: Returning to Campus

Sponsored by the Office of Risk Management, this 30-minute course prepares us to return to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing University policy, best practices for effective physical distancing, cleaning, and personal hygiene, and protocols for those diagnosed with or exposed to the coronavirus.

Nearly 12,000 employees were enrolled on May 27, 2020. Thousands have completed already with completion deadlines determined by plans to return to campus (COVID-19 and Campus Updates). New hires are enrolled on an on-going basis weekly on Wednesdays and notified by email.  

In myHR Learn, search for the course by title, browse to Safety & Security, or follow this link directly to the course. If you have questions, or experience difficulties, please refer to the support document linked below. If your question or issue is not addressed, contact the Help Desk at consultant@northwestern.edu or 1-HELP with a description of your issue. 

A version of the training is available to non-employees. More information follows below.

Are you a research employee, or do you manage or support researchers?

  • The Office of Research Safety (ORS) has prepared a course specifically for researchers called “Pandemic Essentials," also published in myHR Learn. The ORS website has information about the course, contacts for questions, access to completion reports, and related materials.
  • “COVID-19: Returning to Campus,” was prepared by the Office Risk Management for the general population. Northwestern does not double-assign researchers in both courses; however, some researchers may find and self-enroll in the Risk Management course in myHR Learn. The Risk Management course is potentially helpful but not required for researchers.

Are you a contractor, intern, volunteer, or visitor (or an on-campus host or manager)?

  • Learning and Organization Development and Risk Management partnered to make a version of the course accessible to non-employees who do not have access to myHR Learn (which requires a NetID and EMPLID).
  • Qualifying contractors, interns, volunteers, or visitors who will be on campus for an extended period of time may find the non-employee version at this URL (https://bit.ly/NURTC-non-employees) or with the button below. When asked to log in, please provide the same name and email address with which you correspond with your on-site host or manager, and that your host or manager will recognize. Take a screenshot or print the final page as proof of completion.
