COVID-19 Research and Academic Safety Reporting Committee

Mission Statement

In these uncertain times the Penn Engineering Covid-19 Research and Academic Safety Reporting Committee has been formed as an independent oversight body, comprised of staff, students, post docs, and faculty drawn from across the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and charged with serving as allies of the Penn Engineering community to help protect the health and safety of its members. The Committee will provide a safe harbor for individuals who wish to report issues or concerns about the implementations and impacts of policies developed pertaining to COVID–19 as campus operations resume in accordance with University and School guidelines. All complaints forwarded to the Committee will be handled transparently, discreetly, and efficiently, and, when deemed appropriate, will result in recommendations forwarded to the Dean (or the Provost, if appropriate) for further action.

(This committee was previously known as the Watchdog Committee.)

 

If you have an issue or concern to report to the Committee you can submit a webform here or you can relay your report or concern directly to any one of the members of the committee listed below.

Senior Administration will partner with the Covid-19 Research and Academic Safety Reporting Committee to ensure that reports may be filed without fear of reprisal. The Committee is committed to the expeditious and confidential review of reports submitted to it.

Public log of reports and resolutions as of August 31, 2020.

 

Individual email addresses can be found by searching the Penn directory.
