First Day Back

Dear Students,

I hope your first day of classes is going as smooth as possible. As with all transition, we will find a few snags, but the great thing about our community is that we will tackle them together!  I’ve heard from many of you sharing ideas, asking questions, and offering up your thanks as we work to get your semester moving forward.  I know many of you have questions still, and we are working hard to get information out in a timely fashion.  Your questions and comments mean a lot, feel free to keep them coming.  You can email or call 608-663-2212.  This includes reaching out if you need assistance for anything you are experiencing right now.  

Some of you have asked questions about services on campus and how to still access the things you need to be successful.  Good news:  I and my faculty and staff colleagues are here to help support you no matter where our office is located!  Below you can find some details about a variety of resources and offices that are available.  As we move forward and continue to think creatively, more will be included.  Stay tuned to email and the COVID-19 update page for the latest developments. 

For now, I leave you with a reminder that we are all here for you.  You matter to us, immensely.  We want to hear from you if you need assistance, and are ready to support your goals, as we always have!

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.
