Without question, we are in a unique moment of our careers. Arizona State University has transitioned to different modes of teaching in order to respond to our primary mission to educate the students who come to us, and to work as safely as we can during this pandemic. There are many questions about our work conditions, or even whether our campuses should be open at all.

In 2019 the Senate heard from Dr. Aaron Krasnow, Associate Vice President, from ASU Counseling and Health Services about student mental health and national trends. The statistics that he presented were alarming. Between 2010 and 2018 the US has seen a 37% increase in overwhelming anxiety and a 140% increase in students who are being treated for anxiety. Students report being stressed about finances and work-life balance, and often suffer from exhaustion. During that same time frame, cases of interfering depression rose 47% and students treated for depression rose 118%.

On March 23, 2020, the University Academic Council (UAC) introduced a resolution in appreciation of UTO for their unparalleled support to all faculty, staff, and students and their extraordinary responsiveness to the rapidly evolving situation our university, community, and country is currently experiencing.
