We call on the University of South Carolina to pay for comprehensive health insurance for ALL workers, including testing and treatment for COVID-19 and mental health.

The University must prioritize the health and safety of all students and workers on campus. Current student health insurance plans do not offer enough and are expensive, on average, costing 15-20% of yearly graduate student stipends. We must have access to the same benefits offered to full-time faculty and staff.
