An Update on Fall 2020

Dear Students and Colleagues –

Please allow me to bring you an update on the fall semester, now just a bit more than two months away.

Our work continues on creating the safest possible campus community when classes for the fall semester begin on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.

As you know, Margaret Noreuil, Interim V.P. for Academic Affairs, and I are leading a task force to examine and then implement the necessary steps to return for on-campus, in-person living and learning. This group has been meeting twice a week since May 15.

By the end of this week, we’ll have had six meetings with faculty (via WebEx) to gain feedback and input for changes we need to make to “normal” in order to accomplish this goal. I can share with confidence this fall will not be normal. That said, we remain open to doing whatever we need to do to deliver an experience that will be significantly better than what we all experienced during the Spring. I have heard from a number of students and appreciate that some of you want very badly to return to campus, while others have a need to avoid being in crowds. We are working to meet the needs of all of our students.

We’ll likely employ significant technology and we’ll certainly leverage our size to address student (and faculty and staff) concerns related to social distancing and best practices. As is true today on campus, we’ll heed the recommendations of the CDC, and Dane County Public Health, and we’ll continue to take reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This work is time-sensitive. I expect to share a decision on how we’ll proceed this fall sometime next week. As a reminder, I’ll do my best to share what we know when we know it. 

Be well, and I look forward to welcoming you to the Year of Community at Edgewood College in August!

– Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D., President

Preventing the spread

In order to do everything we can to keep all of our community as safe as possible, the Edgewood College community will adhere to a number of safety protocols during the 2020-2021 Academic Year as a way of minimizing risk of the spread of COVID-19. These protocols are based on guidelines provided by Public Health Madison Dane County.

As a member of this Community, I will…

  • Wash my hands properly and regularly.
  • Cover any coughs or sneezes.
  • Comply with posted Public Health Madison Dane County requirements.  
  • Wear a mask covering my nose and mouth while in indoor spaces.
  • Maintain social distancing.
  • Assist in the use of disinfectant wipes to clean shared public workspaces prior to use.
  • Take reasonable precautions to avoid contracting COVID-19 both on- and off-campus.
  • Avoid public places and minimize interpersonal contacts if I have been exposed or have any symptoms of any illness.
  • Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the College and follow any instructions to seek medical care or to quarantine.
  • Agree to be tested for COVID-19, as prescribed by health care professionals. Agree to be cooperative and flexible as we work together to support one another and give our community the best balance of learning and safety.
