CGS Staff 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Pittsburgh has taken steps to protect the health of our students, staff, faculty and community. Classes will be conducted remotely through the end of the spring term. Research activities have been reduced. Most faculty and staff are working from home. Visit Pitt's official COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date information.

All CGS offices are currently working remotely. We continue to retrieve voicemails and emails and are available during regular business hours. Should you have any questions, please email us at the addresses provided below.
