Faculty Environment & Employment

Specific Charge for 2020-2021 Academic Year

The FEEC will develop, distribute via the Faculty Councils, and analyze the results of a survey about faculty working conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic, with a particular emphasis on caregiving, workload, and productivity. When the results are fully analyzed, the committee will prepare a report for the Academic Senate to help inform its work.
