Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

We are excited to be returning to a more robust, in-person experience that will bring our community together again. We remain committed to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, and continue to work closely with local public health officials to ensure our plans align with the latest guidance and recommendations. Given the way campus life inherently puts people in close proximity to each other, including residence and dining halls, classrooms, and gatherings, we have determined that a vaccination requirement is the best way to keep our community safe and prevent potential outbreaks as we return to more regular, in-person operations.
