Welcoming you 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. 

While acknowledging our belief in the importance of a full in-person campus experience, the college's COVID-19 Taskforce is taking the following steps:

  • 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.
  • Alverno is a mask-friendly campus. In alignment with the city, Alverno removed its mask mandate but encourages individuals to wear a mask if they desire to. Please respect the privacy of our community members by not asking about vaccination status and/or why somebody chooses to wear a mask. 

Vaccine and Mask Information

Based on recommendations from the CDC, the college strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine. All individuals ages 16 and older can receive the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost. For help locating a place to receive a vaccine, please monitor the VaccineFinder.

The Alverno campus is a mask-friendly environment, meaning that individuals may choose to wear a mask or face covering even after being fully vaccinated. This is a simple step that we as Alverno community members can commit to taking together to show that we care for each other as a community.

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.
