We are expecting students who hold graduate assistantships to continue working. Supervisors may need to be creative regarding work duties and sensitive to students who cannot perform their responsibilities due to health and safety reasons or other campus guidance about our research and teaching missions. We also ask for flexibility for student caregivers. Students should continue to receive their stipends, which is necessary in order for their health insurance coverage to continue to be subsidized by the University.
If a student in a graduate assistantship becomes sick, they must not be expected to perform assistantship responsibilities during that time.
