AGI Survey on the impact of COVID-19 on the Geosciences

Date: 08/05/2020

On Behalf of the American Geosciences Institute:

Dear Colleague,
The American Geosciences Institute is conducting a year-long study to understand how geoscience employers and educational institutions are changing their workplace and instructional environments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to discover which of these changes will become permanent.
This survey is open to all geoscientists, including geoscience students, retired, and not currently employed, who reside in the United States, and are at least 18 years old.
Over the next 52 weeks, we will email a brief online status survey twice a month to each participant.
The information you provide will be valuable in helping geoscience academic institutions, geoscience employers and decision makers to understand the short-term and long-term structural impacts on the geoscience enterprise from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Results from the study will be reported only in aggregate and in a manner that ensures the confidentiality of the responses. Participation is voluntary, and you may discontinue your participation at any time.
For more information and to participate in the study, please visit https://www.americangeosciences.org/workforce/covid19.
If you have any questions or concerns about this study, please contact Leila Gonzales, who is the principal investigator for this study, at lmg@americangeosciences.org.
Funding for this project is provided by the National Science Foundation (Award #2029570). The results and interpretation of the survey are the views of the American Geosciences Institute and not those of the National Science Foundation.
