Why make the E-pivot pledge?
COGS/UE Local 896 calls on all instructors at the University of Iowa to voluntarily move their classes online for at least the first two weeks of the semester. This e-pivot guarantees that our entire campus has ample time to get vaccinated/boosted, complete re-entry testing, and quarantine if needed before returning to in-person activities safely. By signing this pledge committing to an e-pivot, you are doing your part as a member of the campus community to reduce the impact of COVID-19 in the coming weeks. Remember, the University only works because we do!
