Supporting Faculty During COVID-19

COVID-19 has disrupted academic life in many ways. UMD ADVANCE has created the following resources to help campus leaders and individual faculty navigate, address, and document the impact of the pandemic on faculty members.


In an effort to understand the range of COVID-19-related accommodations, this brief summarizes the responses from each UMD academic college or school regarding changes to faculty-related policy and practice. Initiated by the ADVANCE Program and the ADVANCE Professors, each dean and associate dean for faculty affairs completed a brief inventory regarding their unit’s response to COVID-19.


This document offers guidance for how faculty members can explain how their work has been impacted by the pandemic, including in COVID-19 Impact Statements and in Faculty Success, the faculty activities reporting system.
