The USask Health Sciences Office manages and operates six display monitors in the B-wing of the Health Sciences Building. The purpose of these screens—which may be utilized by students, faculty and staff—include wayfinding, communicating greetings and good news, and promoting events, services and other pertinent initiatives within the building.
Faculty Office Allocations
It is the goal of the Health Sciences Operations Committees and Health Sciences Office to maximize the use of all space within the Health Sciences Building while simultaneously supporting teachers, mentors, and researchers. Because all office space in the Health Sciences Building is non-college and non-departmental, all office assignments for faculty and academic professionals are coordinated through through the Health Sciences Office based on the guiding principles developed and approved by the Health Science Research Operations Committee.
Key and Access Card Policy
The USask Health Sciences Office issues building/room keys and access cards to faculty, staff, resident students, authorized non-resident students or visiting scientists, and persons or organizations with contractual agreements with the University.
All keys/access cards are the property of the University and must be returned upon termination of employment. Obsolete or unneeded keys must be returned to the OVPH for disposal.
Key and Access Card Permissions
The purpose of this policy is to protect the property and privacy of the University and of individuals assigned to use Health Sciences facilities, by limiting access to such owned or leased facilities to assigned individuals and to their supervisors.
This policy was developed to ensure the LEED standards pertaining to “daylighting” as originally designed for the Health Science D and E Wings are followed so as to not disadvantage the occupants of interior offices.
The purpose of this policy is to help ensure that occupants and users of the Health Sciences Building are not adversely affected by second-hand smoke.
