COVID-19 Faculty Resources

We strongly encourage faculty, postdocs, and graduate students to teach and conduct research remotely. Faculty, postdocs, and graduate students who have received an exception from their dean or the vice provost for research to continue critical research on campus should follow the guidance provided by the Office of the Provost, YSM, and FAS.


Dear Department of Economics Faculty, Students, Visitors, Predocs, and Staff:

Following University policy restricting building access for faculty and students, the University is planning to lock all campus buildings.  You will no longer be able to access buildings with your Yale ID.  If you have approval from the FAS Dean’s Office to enter a building, you will need to be escorted by Yale Security. 

The University’s policy is consistent with directives from the State of Connecticut and is for the safety of faculty, students, and staff, and that of the broader community, and it is being complied with and enforced across the University.  The FAS Dean’s Office understands that these policies are burdensome and impose hardship and greatly appreciates your cooperation in ensuring their smooth implementation during these extremely stressful and challenging times.

Our buildings (27, 28, 30, 37 Hillhouse) will be locked as of 5PM on Wednesday, March 26.  If you need to get anything from your office, please do so before then.

Thank you and stay well.


Dorothy Ovelar, Administrative Director

Tony Smith, Chair Department of Economics
