Dear Economics Students, Faculty, Staff, and Community,

The Economics Department has been working hard and meeting daily to monitor and plan for COVID-19/Coronavirus and the safety of our community. We understand that we live in very uncertain times and, with news about the virus changing rapidly, it is hard to digest everything we are reading and hearing from all of the different news outlets. Please know the Economics department is committed to working in everyone’s best interest—students, faculty, staff, and community at large.

We have been mandated by the Chancellor’s Office, Academic Senate, and Faculty Executive Committee to move forward with the actions listed below in the best interest of everyone’s healthy and safety. We are working with the equitable nature of everyone in mind to ensure the most constructive solution is taken for the greater good. We thank you for your understanding, compassion, and, above all else, patience through this time.

Through all of the anxiety and heightened concerns we have heard, we have clearly seen our campus community embrace the prevention and precautionary measures to help us all fight the spread of COVID-19 together.

To see more information on the steps being taken by UCLA to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff, please visit the UCLA Bruins Safe Online or UCLA Newsroom (links above).

With all this in mind, our department has decided to work remotely until further notice. That means we are not working from our offices in Bunche Hall. However, rest assured that we are all working diligently to ensure our students are getting what they need.  Our undergraduate counselors can be reached through MyUCLA and they are able to schedule phone calls and Zoom meetings with students as needed. Our MAE and Graduate advisors are reachable via email.
