RAPID: Effects of the coronavirus disease pandemic and institution responses on undergraduate faculty and students across disciplines

The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in unprecedented nation-wide closures of academic institutions, creating an urgent need to understand the acute effects of this disruption on undergraduate STEM education in the U.S. This project will examine experiences of faculty and students resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent institutional changes. Initiated during a time of uncertainty, this project will (1) capture the ephemeral nature of undergraduate education experiences before national recovery milestones are achieved and (2) inform efforts to adapt undergraduate STEM education during crisis.
