Faculty deserve recognition of the ongoing effects of the pandemic on research and workload

We have shared your concerns about the ongoing effects of the pandemic on your performance and teaching workload with the administration at Faculty Relations Committee and asked for the same APR process as last year. Our arguments were two-fold: The university must acknowledge the ongoing effects of the pandemic (on workload, mental health, the ability to conduct research, the teaching environment, and so on); and returning to a normal evaluation process this year is inequitable for probationary (pre-tenure) and definite-term faculty. We are very disappointed to report that these concerns are not being recognized.
