Students are experiencing varying levels of personal challenges in the current pandemic. Within our community, some are at the front lines of the health emergency, either because they have lost loved ones or fallen sick themselves, or because they’re braving the risks of exposure in hospitals and other sites of essential services.
Many can work from home and are eligible for government supports. Others aren’t eligible for government supports, have lost outside jobs, and find themselves experiencing significant financial hardships. And those with caregiver responsibilities or accessibility challenges may be finding it particularly challenging to work from home and advance their academic work. Students living with disabilities or health concerns may also be experiencing an exacerbation of symptoms that may impact their academic progress. The University has several supports and resources available for students in these challenging time.
