New survey seeks to understand faculty experiences during pandemic

COVID pandemic facemask

Research from the School of Health Policy and Management is examining how the COVID-19 pandemic has shaped the work and life responsibilities of faculty members at York University.

The research study led by PhD candidate Piara Govender from the Graduate Program in Health explores how different social identities and work-life balance relate to the health and well-being of York faculty members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Faculty members interested in participating in the study can fill out the survey which will take between 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The survey focuses on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted working conditions, work-life balance, and the health and well-being of faculty members. Survey responses are anonymous, and participation is voluntary. This research study has been approved by the Research Ethics Board at York University. The survey can be accessed online.  

It will provide valuable information on the diverse experiences, perspectives and needs of faculty members. Findings from this study will help us better understand what types of policies, practices, or services could support faculty members in the future.
