Welcoming you back to campus

WELCOME BACK TO CAMPUS!  

At Alverno College, we believe that the most successful experience for our students, faculty and staff is achieved through community building and collaboration, which happens best during in-person engagement. 

We are committed to delivering an in-person learning and co-curricular experience for the fall 2021 semester, keeping at the forefront the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. 

The Alverno College Fall 2021 Campus Guidelines contain important information for the campus community to know.

Additionally, the college's COVID-19 Taskforce is taking the following steps:

  • All Alverno faculty, staff and students who come to campus in person in any capacity must be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus by Nov. 1, 2021. This includes all individuals who will have face-to-face interaction with students, faculty and/or staff (on or off campus).
  • In alignment with the city and CDC recommendations, Alverno requires all students, faculty, staff and visitors to wear masks while in campus buildings.
  • Appropriate safety protocols will continue to be in place, based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local and state health departments.
  • Campus safety protocols will be regularly assessed and updated as needed. 

You can find the college's self-reported cases of the virus on our COVID-19 dashboard, which is broken down in two categories: Alverno students and Alverno faculty and staff. For the purposes of reporting, Alverno faculty and staff will be shown in aggregate.

COVID-19 Notification Process 

  • Students who have tested positive for COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to somebody who tested positive must complete this Covid Notification Form.
  • Faculty or staff who have tested positive for COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to somebody who tested positive must report this information to HR and their supervisor.

Safety Precautions and COVID-19-Enhanced Cleaning  

As a campus community, we have shared responsibility in keeping our spaces clean and safe. Our continued enhanced housekeeping procedures include:

  • Classrooms and meeting rooms are deep cleaned once per day, and supplies to facilitate self-cleaning are regularly stocked.
  • Restrooms are deep cleaned and disinfected daily, and touchpoint restroom cleaning is performed throughout the day. 
  • Public spaces have dedicated housekeeping staff to do regular cleaning, and supplies to facilitate self-cleaning are regularly stocked.
  • Plexiglas and other barriers for high-traffic transactional counters have been installed.

Contact Information

All COVID-19-related questions can be sent to covidresponse@alverno.edu, which is checked once daily on days the college is open for business operations this summer. 

Get ready for a bright
future
