Are you a manager in need of the completion report?


  • Managers/supervisors can see the status of direct reports in myHR Learn > ME > MY TEAM. 

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.
