Writing a Covid Impact Statement

Understanding and Creating a COVID-19 Impact Statement offers a broad overview of COVID-19 Impact Statements, the rationale, and some framing questions for faculty to consider as they write or interpret these statements. (PDF)

How to Write a COVID-19 Impact Statement in One Hour is a practical guidance tool that faculty could use to actually write such a statement, and provides a table of the sorts of impacts they might choose to document. While faculty are encouraged to block off a concrete amount of time for this statement to avoid overwork, an hour is likely shorter than some (and longer than others) will need for this documentation work.

Workshop: “Preparing for Reviews in Light of Covid-19 Impacts Faculty Workshop: Feb 25 or March 4

Faculty who complete the workshop will:

  • Understand the purpose of the Covid-19 Impact statement, both for their individual file and as part of documenting the pandemic’s disruption on faculty workload and well-being.
  • Identify the core areas in which the pandemic altered the conditions for scholarship, teaching, and service, in relation to their appointment type.
  • Review examples of Covid-19 impacts that seek to avoid activating caregiver or other biases.
  • Discuss Covid-19 impacts in a formative way with fellow faculty and facilitators outside of usual review procedure.
  • Get started on a draft statement or outline.


Led By: Professor Lisa Martinez, Teaching Professor Nancy Sasaki, Teaching Assistant Professor Aubrey Schiavone, and Director of Faculty Development Alison Staudinger.
