  1. For your next article, you should profile some of the graduate students who have had to work in-person thoughout the last 18 months with no increase to stipend (if they have one at all), and who are now being asked to do even more work with both playing catch up from the entire pandemic and also increase productivity (results, abstracts, posters, publications, etc) under pressure from their departments. All of that is added on top of their teaching responsibilities, now in-person, for which many do not get an increase in their yearly stipend. I wouldn’t be so sure that the grad students are celebrating the ever increasing workload and immense uncertainty due to the pandemic (which has proven itself to not be over). But whatever it takes for BU to get that sweet, sweet underpaid and cheap labor to keep its labs running, undergrad students taught, and lights on.
