College of Southern Maryland

SOUTHERN MARYLAND – College of Southern Maryland (CSM) President Dr. Maureen Murphy announced to faculty and staff June 29 that the college will institute Remote Work Friday from July 8 – Aug. 12 for all telework-eligible positions in response to escalating gas prices.

Maryland motorists face a 6.6-cent increase per gallon of gas starting, July 1.

“I hope everyone is enjoying this glorious Southern Maryland summer,” Murphy shared with employees. “All of us, though, are feeling the pressures of inflation and escalating gas prices. To give many of us a bit of relief this summer, we are instituting Remote Work Fridays from July 8 through August 12 for all telework-eligible positions.”

Kids College, scheduled credit classes, and other scheduled on-site activities will continue; however, all administrative offices will operate remotely on Fridays during these weeks.

CSM already participates in Code Green Fridays – and energy saving initiative designed to shrink the college’s carbon footprint during the hot months of summer by reducing building and infrastructure usage.

Most CSM services close every Friday in 2022 at 1:30 p.m., May 27 through July 29.

CSM remains committed to attracting, retaining, supporting the financial, and health wellbeing of its employees and Remote Work Friday is the latest in many benefits offered at the college.

  1. Gas prices stopped “escalating” 2 weeks ago. They were down 52 cent per gallon from the high this morning.

    1. But yet according to you gas prices are having zero effect on the economy…………………….obviously you’re wrong

      1. Nope…what I said (multiple times) was that there has been no discernible difference in the number of cars on the road. The Dept of Transportation released data that confirmed this. (Data you conveniently ignored). By they way, nothing in my comment to this article made any reference to gas prices and the economy.

        1. That’s your opinion (as I’ve said multiple times) if gas prices were not affecting the economy negatively businesses and government would not be attempting to help out citizens

          I mean I know you don’t care about gas prices because your mommy drives you around in her minivan

      2. Also if this was such a crisis it would not limited only to 6 mid summer Fridays and only to “telework eligible positions”. This is nothing more than allowing certain people to leave for Ocean City or Deep Creek Lake a day earlier.

        1. I’ll ping you when I want, how I want, you aren’t going to do anything about it, so you can shove your ping! You’ll enjoy that

        2. You better be going around with your mommy in her minivan looking for those comments I put up that you posted on here! How’s that for your ping or do you not understand that either?
