Mason provides you with workplace flexibility.
Telework allows employees to work at an approved alternate site for an agreed upon period of time. Your alternate work site may be your home, another Mason campus, or other supervisor-approved location.
To begin the process, complete the Flexible Work Agreement form below and submit it to your supervisor for approval. Note that Dan Taggart is the Department Head in the College of Science.

What is the VPN?
The Mason Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a service that allows your computer to act as though it is on campus, even if it is not. All traffic between the connected computer and the campus is encrypted. When connected to the VPN, you can access sensitive information without worrying about the security of the network you are on.
