Resources for Pandemic Impact and Recovery

Northwestern is developing strategies to mitigate challenges that were created or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and to support faculty members in their research and creative work, teaching, service and well-being.

The Faculty Pandemic Impact Response Workgroup identified five broad themes for support in its Fall 2021 report:

  • Career recovery (research, teaching, and evaluation and promotion)
  • Caregiving
  • Health and Well-being
  • Institutional response
  • Communication

This webpage gathers information about University resources available to assist faculty with continuing short-term and long-term mitigation and recovery. Faculty members who need assistance determining eligibility, finding additional resources or getting questions answered are encouraged to email
