CSUPERB recognizes that there have been dramatic impacts on the ability for faculty and students to carry out research on their campuses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost all faculty research laboratories have been closed since mid-March, and those few that have remained active or restarted research activity have been operating under restrictions that have slowed student involvement and overall productivity.
In recognition of these impacts, CSUPERB is working to remain as flexible as possible in allowing changes to grants and awards to help faculty and student grantees utilize their CSUPERB funding. Specific processes are listed in the sections below. If your situation is not discussed please contact the following CSUPERB staff for assistance - Christine Montgomery (firstname.lastname@example.org) for student based programs and James Schmitt (email@example.com) for faculty based programs.
CSUPERB has also concucted an online survey of CSU faculty and students and the impacts COVID-19 has had on their labs and academic progress. Please read the results and recommendations from that data in this document (click here).
