Community

The Department of Psychology is committed to ensuring active resources for all community members. Particularly during this challenging moment in our history, we must come together as a community to provide guidance and support for one another.
 
To that end, please join our new Slack community at https://fas-psychology.slack.com.  If you encounter difficulties logging in, please email Krista Lester to request an invitation to join.

Recent key changes and notes from OSP include:
 
  • Compensation should continue to be charged to awards whether individuals can or cannot contribute to the project. This may not continue indefinitely but for both NIH and NSF it is applicable for up to 30 days, consistent with the university’s current published policy. For now assume that it is any 30 days, per individual, when work cannot be performed (please read the FAQs).
  • All cancelled travel and related costs may be charged to sponsored awards.
  • Documentation is critical, be sure to identify COVID-19 related incremental costs and salary unrelated to effort, and maintain that documentation.
