Working at NBSS
Reopening NBSS is essential to our mission, the education and training that we deliver, and the future of the School. We feel confident in our ability to provide a safe, healthy, and productive environment for everyone at NBSS. However, it will take the commitment and dedication of our entire community to see us through this challenging moment.
We will proceed with great caution as we closely watch the trends in Greater Boston. Our response and contingency plans will flex and adapt as necessary to maintain the health and safety of our community—students, faculty, and employees alike. While working at NBSS will feel different in many ways as we move forward, we are optimistic about the opportunities for growth this moment presents.
Answers to frequently asked questions related to your roles as full-time faculty and staff are below. We encourage our entire community to review the Health & Safety page for guidelines, protocols, and FAQs. Students (both full-time and continuing education) should visit the Training & Education page for information relevant to their status and program. For questions not addressed here, please contact email@example.com.
