Pitt Fall 2020 COVID-19 Workplace Survey
As the University of Pittsburgh has developed their plan for Fall, it has become clear that the administration did not ask for sufficient input from faculty, graduate student workers, staff or its student population. Faculty members and graduate students who are supposed to teach this Fall found out about the university's plan after the incoming freshmen were notified.

Acknowledging the magnitude of the situation and the many communications we have received from the University of Pittsburgh, the Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC-USW) invites you to complete this survey to identify any areas around which you need further support.* We would like to use the survey results to help us address the gaps in the administration's planning for Fall 2020.

*Completing this form is voluntary. Your responses and contact information will only be shared with organizers with Pitt's Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC-USW).
