UNC graduate student workers have created a list of demands they would like University leaders to meet in response to COVID-19 conditions. Entitled “Demands for the Immediate Relief of Graduate Workers at UNC-CH,” the statement outlines a variety of graduate student worker concerns, including a 75 percent cost of living adjustment and additional time and funding to complete degrees. Host Evely Forte talks to DTH University staff writer Rachel Crumpler to break down these demands and to better understand how they will impact the UNC campus community.
