The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the work of faculty members. Women and faculty of color have been particularly affected, due to increased care responsibilities and disparate community health and economic impacts. How can universities ensure that any evaluations of faculty members recognize pandemic impacts as an unavoidable, unexpected occurrence? Without taking measures to address the impact of the pandemic, universities are likely to become less diverse. Drawing from a case study at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Clark, Mickey, and Misra will discuss some of the steps they see as crucial to responding effectively to the pandemic.
