COVID-19 displaced many faculty and researchers around the world, challenging institutions to set up infrastructures for a global remote workforce seemingly overnight and to adopt new practices given the length of the pandemic. Setting up work abroad involves significant tax and labor compliance requirements, internal infrastructures to support those requirements, and an institutional network of communication that is often difficult in decentralized universities. Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania will present their two approaches to supporting teaching and research abroad during the pandemic and beyond, and will present their lessons learned as we approach global remote work post-pandemic.
