COVID-19 Resources

A Message from the Vice Provost 

The Office of Faculty Development, Diversity and Engagement hopes that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy in these exceptional times. We especially appreciate and thank you for your flexibility in switching from in-person to virtual classess and adapting your research programs in the face of the Bay Area's shelter in place orders.

We are aware that you have many concerns during these changing times. Many of you have young families and undoubtedly school and daycare closures have been a signifcant challenge. Financial worries also may arise because a spouse or partner may be unable to work or has lost a job. Some of you may be wondering about the status of your tenure review or re-appointment. Others may be needing mental health support for themselves or a loved one. 

In order to better support you at this time, we are asking for your feedback as our office is actively working together with our campus partners and University leadership to address your needs and issues. In the coming weeks we also hope to host informational webinars to address some of these concerns. Please contact us or email:
