On Equity

A Statement on Equity

Please be aware that owing to the new situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic, our students and ourselves are under a lot of pressure. We know that some of our students are caregivers to their families and loved ones. Many may be working more, because their jobs require them to, or less, because work is no longer available, creating financial duress. Students may have limited technology access, including lack of WiFi and cellphone-only access with limited data. 

Equity and diversity activists are emphasizing asynchronous and low-tech solutions. 

Please take things easy, both on yourselves and your students, and be flexible as we are all adapting to the new situation.
