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.
OFA and ADVANCE have created a document to offer suggestions to academic leaders about how to balance faculty member needs impacted by the COVID-19 crisis on faculty members with the need to continue department operations, offer high-quality instruction to students, and support research excellence.
