ULFA report COVID 19 Workload

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been almost universally negative for the ULFA membership. ULFA conducted a survey of its membership between November 30 and December 16, 2020. The survey was composed of 46 questions and 241 members responded to it, representing 40% of ULFA’s membership as of December 2020.

The results show, unsurprisingly, that the COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse impact on the ability of members to competently perform their teaching, research, and service duties. The time members have to competently perform their duties has decreased, while the time required to competently perform those duties has increased. The impacts have been particularly pronounced on respondents with caregiving responsibilities, those who identify as women, those aged 49 and below, and those who identify as members of other equity-seeking groups.
