Fall 2020 Update - Midterm Arrives and Here We Are

Dear Students and Colleagues – 

This week marks the official midterm of the Fall 2020 Semester. You have all been working hard, and staying on track under often challenging circumstances. There is a quote, widely attributed to American novelist James Lane Allen, that reads, “Adversity does not build character, it reveals it.” Your intelligence, creativity, and resilience reveals that you are equal to the task of making this community one that embraces opportunity. You support each other, and you are not afraid to reach out when you need a hand. Students and members of the faculty and staff: I applaud your commitment to each other and to this community of learners. Let’s keep going.

We’ve celebrated Pride Week on our campus with a series of virtual events this week that reinforce our commitment to each other. We’ve also just concluded national Hispanic Heritage Month and on Monday we celebrated Indigenous Peoples Day. These are the kinds of observances that remind us how fortunate we are to be part of a diverse community of people who make the fabric of Edgewood College as deep and rich as it is. I hope you’re enjoying the Theatre Department’s Social Justice Play Reading series – presented via WebEx. Next week is particularly intriguing for me. It’s the Shakespeare classic “Measure for Measure.” And tonight at 7:00 pm the Music Department presents our first Fall concert, featuring the Chamber Orchestra, Guitar Ensemble, and the Wind and Percussion Ensemble. These are important examples of how we as a community carry on in the face of this pandemic. These events – Pride Week, Fine Arts performances, and many others - are marked by the intelligence, creativity, and resilience that reveals the true character of this community – your character, and your community.

Let’s keep it up - wear your mask, wash your hands, maintain physical distancing at all times, and tighten your social circles. This goes for on-campus and off-campus. I’ve been asked by several people if we have developed our plans for spring semester yet. I anticipate having information about that in next week’s message. Even as Wisconsin is in the national spotlight in the fight to slow the spread, we continue to do well navigating these days and weeks. Let’s keep it up, and let’s do it for each other.

Be well.

Cor ad cor loquitur.

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.
