A recent Chronicle survey of more than 1,100 college faculty reveals the pandemic’s dramatic toll on job satisfaction and emotional well-being. More than two-thirds of respondents described their mental state as “very” or “extremely” stressed. As the pandemic surges, faculty are facing increased workloads and adapting to distance land hybrid learning models. How can colleges better support them in these unprecedented times?

Join The Chronicle for a virtual forum that delves into the results from the October survey and offers solutions for HR departments at colleges and universities around the country. Our panel of experts, moderated by Chronicle editor, Liz McMillen, will seek to answer:

  • What do faculty attitudes suggest about the future of the academic workforce?
  • How can provosts, deans, and department heads work with HR to support professors?
  • What key policy changes and benefits could better support exhausted faculty?

Panelists include:

  • Sheraine Gilliam-Holmes, Chief HR Officer, Austin Peay State University
  • Kimberly Griffin, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Faculty Affairs, University of Maryland
  • David Trainor, Vice President Human Resources, Boston College
  • Allison Vaillancourt, Vice President, Organizational Effectiveness, Segal
