To start this tenth "Study" newsletter, Floriane Lavanchy, deputy head of the Security group, explains in an interview the work currently being carried out to ensure security on the Dorigny campus. At the teaching level, the CSE informs you that you will soon be able to express your opinion on the courses given by your professors. UNIL would also like to thank the Fondation maisons pour étudiants Lausanne for helping students in financial difficulty, notably in the form of a donation of 200’000 francs to the financial support schemes set up by UNIL and EPFL. Finally, the Office of Equality offers an overview of UNIL's measures and benefits in favour of work-family-study balance. The next newsletter will be published at the end of May, following the Federal Council's situation report on 27 May. It will be mainly devoted to the responses that UNIL will give to the announcements of the political authorities. The Coronacell is currently working on scenarios for the partial and gradual reopening of the campus for employees from 8 June, in line with the date given at this stage by the Federal Council for a further softening of health protection measures.
"Our checks are intended to protect people."
While the vast majority of the university community works or studies at home, the eight Security, Environment, Prevention (UniSEP) agents are on duty 24 hours a day on campus. Interview with their coordinator Floriane Lavanchy, Deputy Head of the Security Group.
Give your opinion on your courses
Starting this week, your teachers have the opportunity to ask the Teaching Support Centre (CSE) to send out an evaluation questionnaire in order to obtain your opinion on their teaching, both face-to-face and at a distance, and your possible needs and suggestions for improvement. If necessary, you will receive an e-mail from the CSE inviting you to fill in an online questionnaire anonymously. Take this opportunity to dialogue with your teachers in a constructive way and to inform them of any suggestions you may have.
A much appreciated help from the FMEL for UNIL students
Some students at Lausanne's universities are experiencing serious financial difficulties following the Covid-19 crisis, particularly in order to pay their rent. In order to help them, the Fondation maisons pour étudiants Lausanne (FMEL) decided to act in two stages. First of all, in March 2020, it introduced various relief measures, such as facilitated departures or staggered rents. Secondly, in May, it granted a donation of CHF 200’000 to UNIL and EPFL. This amount, divided equally between the two institutions, is intended to make an exceptional contribution to the support schemes set up by the two institutions to help students in financial difficulty. This contribution is both useful and appreciated to help students in Lausanne's university community.
