Britain's Liverpool Hope University has infuriated faculty members by saying that it expects their work days to be spent on campus and not -- as many faculty members doing writing or grading do -- working from home. The Times Higher reported that a new policy says that working from home should be the "exception to the norm and can be authorized only by a dean in each instance." When faculty members have authorization to work from home, they are instructed to kee a "careful note of activity engaged in during such absences that, if required, they are able to discuss with an authorized line manager."
