Student Space Reservation System Coming Soon 

  • LSA is working on a self-service room reservation system. Once this is available, all students will be made aware so they can use available rooms for their remote class and/or study areas.
  • In the meantime, manually sign up for any of the 70 classrooms available for 90 minute reservations.  There is signage near, or on, the door which identifies if the classroom is open for student reservations.
  • The University is providing additional outdoor space for students and the U-M community with tents furnished with chairs and tables. Under the university’s current plans, they are not reservable.

Supporting our Diverse Community

STAY INFORMED ABOUT BIAS & DISCRIMINATION IN RELATION TO COVID19

It is important that we all stay informed about the ways that the COVID-19 health crisis differentially impacts various communities and various members of our community. Below are articles that may help to highlight some important areas of concern:

Impact of COVID-19 planning for DACA Students

Impact of COVID-19 on low-income immigrant families

Racism/xenophobia in relation to COVID19
 

COMBATTING BIAS, REPORTING DISCRIMINATION, AND BEING AN ALLY

The Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON) reports that as of March 27, 2020 there have been more than 750 racially biased attacks against Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islanders in the US. These attacks have come in relation to the Covid19 health crisis. As a department, we extend our support to the AAPI community and to all individuals and families who are especially vulnerable during this time.

RESOURCES FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS, UNDOCUMENTED STUDENTS, LOW-INCOME STUDENTS, AND STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

In the weeks and months ahead, students from various intersecting backgrounds will likely face unanticipated challenges and will need different kinds of supports. Below please find resources that we hope will be helpful.
