Research, scholarship and creative work, as well as clinical services, are integral to our mission to support the public good while providing our students with the opportunity for experiential training. To safely continue these core functions, each research team and clinic have approved protocols and guidance for in-person activities on campus.


Key Protocols

Classroom Experience

    Face Coverings

    Anyone who would like to wear a face covering is welcome to do so.

  • Physical distance icon

    Physical Distancing

    For Fall 2021, we are returning to normal density classrooms. Many of these have approximately 3 foot distancing.

  • checkmark


    Custodial staff will disinfect classrooms using specialized equipment. To support this important role, we ask that all individuals remove their trash and return furniture to its usual position if moved during class. Eating in class is prohibited, and we encourage individuals to use available disinfectant materials to wipe their space before class.

Creative & Performing Arts

We are enthusiastic about returning to in-person creative and performing events and look forward to welcoming audiences to our performances. An ongoing performance group inclusive of Theatre, Lamont, Newman and athletics will work together to share best practices as we return to full-capacity events. Specific requirements and protocols will be provided by the relevant units.
