We should all feel pride in our efforts to keep our community safe. As a reminder, you can track weekly COVID data on the university dashboard

Please find below a few important reminders regarding our mitigation efforts to keep our campus safe. 

  • Boosters, testing, and masks available at the University Center 
    • Please upload your booster shot validation by February 4, or when eligible. Booster shots are available free of charge at the University Center clinic, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7:30 am-6:30 pm. Information about compliance will be shared by Human Resources or the Dean of Students shortly after this date. 
    • COVID tests are also available free of charge to all students, faculty, and staff during clinic hours regardless of your vaccination or exemption status.
