My name is Terry Shanahan. This is my 20th year at UCI helping undergraduates become effective teachers of math or science. For me, a June 30th lay-off means that students will get short-changed in the quality of education they expect when they enroll here. My colleagues are working hard to support remote learning and have gone above and beyond expectations to learn new skills so that students can succeed. A lay-off now would be a sign of disrespect on the part of UC administration. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
