Faculty Pandemic Impact Response Workgroup

The Faculty Pandemic Impact Response Workgroup was convened in March 2021 by Provost Kathleen Hagerty to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on faculty and to recommend strategies to mitigate the impacts and disruption of the pandemic. The workgroup built on the COVID-19 Tactical Response Team’s work completed in December 2020. The workgroup also sought to address in concrete ways the concerns and input received from the Organization of Women Faculty (OWF) in Fall Quarter 2020.

In May 2021, the Faculty Pandemic Impact Response Workgroup conducted a survey and focus groups to learn more about the impact of the pandemic on faculty and resources for mitigating disruptions. The workgroup was charged with recommending creative and forward-thinking strategies to support faculty as they continue to face challenges in how they do their work as educators, researchers, mentors, and creators. The workgroup will complete and publish its report in Fall 2021.
