Webinar: COVID-19: Q&A for Graduate Students of ColorDate: Tuesday, April 7, 2020Time: 12:00-1:15pmLink: https://udel.zoom.us/j/748593425Description: Webinar event featuring a panel of UD leadership (Michael Vaughan, Doug Doren, and LaRuth McAfee) specifically targeted to engage URM graduate students in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Students will voice questions, comments, or concerns about the university's efforts to ensure their degree progress and completion in this 'new normal.' The panelists will provide insight on how the university will continue its mission to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion for URM graduate students. They will also assure students about their commitment to supporting and guiding them as we work together to tackle this complex public health crisis.

my concern is about summer jobs or internships at the University. what happens to the jobs which were advertised and which we may have applied to?

Information on fees is available here: https://www.udel.edu/content/dam/udelImages/main/photography/campus/coronavirus/Finance-Adjustments.pdf

Question regrading students graduating this spring. For students graduating in spring. Do the medical insurance go through till August?
Gene Castellano
42:36
Will the high pass and pass grades have a numeric equivalent for an overall cumulative average?
Joseph Stock
43:07
Regarding student fees being refunded to student accounts, if this is our final semester can we receive the money rather than a student account credit?
Gunner Taylor
44:43
I think we all appreciate a dedication to flexibility when it comes to graduation timelines, but when will the University insure that all students who need deadline extensions will receive them? We need full funding for at least an additional semester for all students who want it.
Kery Lawson
45:13
To add on to Joseph—I’m not graduating but would also appreciate money instead of an account credit. (Or is there already a mechanism to transfer money in our accounts?)
William Vincett

YuanChi Liu

due to approaching the deadline for rent gowns, when will be the decision made for the commencement?
Gunner Taylor
49:03
In addition to extending timelines and funding, some universities have gone as far as to give students one-time emergency funding payments. When can we expect decisive action like this from UD?
Kami Silk
51:25
Is there a new specific deadline for thesis submissions to the graduate school for Spring 2020?
Lucas Dunshee
52:03
We can only write for so long. Lab work is the work that counts.
Gunner Taylor
53:05
To add on to what Lucas has said, we all need access to the library and ILL
Gunner Taylor
53:29
Can't write at home without access to academic sources
James Angelini
53:50
Would an extension to the due dates for theses and dissertations be extended? Or could sustaining fees be waived for summer if students need to finish them due to the current situation?

I think Gunner is asking important questions. First: I think we all appreciate a dedication to flexibility when it comes to graduation timelines, but when will the University insure that all students who need deadline extensions will receive them? We need full funding for at least an additional semester for all students who want it.
