Our faculty members are what make Texas a university of the first class. It’s of the utmost importance that our faculty are supported and prepared while continuing their teaching, scholarship and research.

We recognize that some faculty will be apprehensive about returning to in-person instruction due to their own medical condition or the medical condition of a dependent. Programs established last fall have been extended through the spring semester:

  • Faculty and staff may request Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations for their own medical conditions through the ADA accommodation process
  • Faculty living with immunocompromised dependents may request a change in teaching modality for the spring semester by submitting an application for a Faculty Flexible Teaching Modality Agreement

We also encourage faculty to continue to find ways to be equitable and flexible while adapting to the needs of your students.
