Last Updated: Sept 11, 2020

 As members of the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies (GSS) are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in unprecedented and widespread disruption to normal operations within the Program and throughout the University. This page is intended to provide information and updates that are specific to GSS. University-wide guidance can be found on the University's COVID-19 Coronavirus Information page.

REMOTE WORK

In compliance with Princeton University’s orders, all members of the Program—including faculty, students, visitors, lecturers, and staff—should continue to work from home until further notice.

PROGRAM OFFICE

The GSS main office is closed. All staff can be reached via email or their office phone, as calls are being forwarded to them while working remotely. If you are unsure who you wish to contact, please e-mail gss@princeton.edu. This mailbox is being monitored daily. 

UNDERGRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

P/D/F OPTION

The University has added the P/D/F option to all undergraduate courses. Faculty retain the option to elect the P/D/F-only grading option for their courses. 

All questions pertaining to the GSS certificate should be sent directly to Maria Papadakis.

MAIL

We request that Program members no longer have personal packages sent to the office and forward all important mail to their home address. The Program checks for mail and drops it off in people’s offices only sporadically. 

PAYROLL CHECKS

Those who receive a paper paycheck will receive it at their home/local mailing address, not in their department mailbox. If you receive a paper paycheck, you are encouraged to 1) update your home/local mailing address in HR Service (TigerHub for graduate students) and 2) sign up for direct deposit, also through HR Self Service or TigerHub. Those who are already paid via direct deposit will continue to be paid as usual.
