Resources for Current Employees

Where Do I Turn?

Washington and Lee is committed to creating a safe campus environment where its members treat each other with civility and respect. At the same time, our goal is to provide employees and their families with resources to deal with a wide variety of concerns that might arise and to provide multiple ways that a faculty or staff member can address an issue.

Employee Handbook

All faculty, staff and administration are provided with a current copy of the Employee Handbook upon employment. The handbook is updated annually and the most recent copy is available online. In addition to the Employee Handbook, faculty should refer to the Faculty Handbook for separate information on faculty careers, governance and policies. The Faculty Handbook is located on the Provost's website.

Emergency Management

Washington and Lee University is committed to developing and administrating a comprehensive emergency management program to encompass the University community. The Emergency Management Plan supports W&L's ongoing risk and threat assessment operations, emergency preparedness provisions, and business continuity and recovery plans to provide prompt and effective response for the protection of W&L students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors in an emergency situation. The Plan establishes procedures and an organized structure to guide the University in responding to significant foreseeable emergencies on the W&L campus or property owned or operated by W&L.

Employee Relations and Communications

Maintaining effective communications with employees is a high priority of the University and the Office of Human Resources. We do so through a variety of topical meetings and information sessions, electronic communications and employee committees.
