The UGA Chapter of the United Campus Workers (UCWGA) of UGA stands in solidarity with the #WaiveTheFeeUGA petition. UGA students should not have to pay a fee to cancel their housing contract given the exceptional circumstances posed by COVID.

On USG campuses across the state, campus workers and students have been confounded by Universities’ insistence on carrying out plans to reopen in spite of surging COVID-19 cases and conflicting guidance from public health experts at the CDC. Yesterday, a new piece of information provided evidence that the University System of Georgia (USG) is being pressured to reopen by the private contractor who has multi-decade contracts to run many USG dorms.

Participants: President Jere Morehead, Provost Jack Hu, Vice President for Instruction Rahul Shrivastav, Vice President for Student Affairs Victor Wilson, University Health Center Executive Director Garth Russo, AU/UGA Medical Partnership Campus Dean Shelley Nuss, and College of Veterinary Medicine Dean Lisa Nolan. Libby Morris, Director of the Institute of Higher Education, moderator.

On Thursday, August 6th at noon, UGA students, staff, and faculty, supported by members of the United Campus Workers of Georgia, staged a physically distant, masked “die-in” to protest what some are calling UGA’s “death calculus.” The protest took place on UGA’s North Campus in front of the Office of the President.

The UGA chapter of United Campus Workers of Georgia (UCWGA) appreciates that the UGA administration acquiesced to the call from an array of campus constituencies, including UCWGA and the Faculty Senates of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education, for the webinar with the UGA community on 8/4 to address concerns with the fall reopening plan.
