New Hotline Established for Students

Dear Students –

I’m sending this message only to you, our students.

In response to a request from the Student Senate, we have established a hotline for students to facilitate our “if you see something, say something” approach to slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

I am encouraged by the small downturn in the number of positive cases, and I thank you all for what you are doing to make that happen. While it is true that we have had a small number of cases of serious violations of our COVID-19 protocols on campus, those are the exception. As a rule, the vast majority of you are doing exactly what we are asking of our entire community: wearing your mask, maintaining physical distancing at all times, and tightening your social circles. But I recognize that sometimes we forget or let our guard down. So, to help us all work together, we are providing you with a tool requested by the leadership of the Student Senate.

As I shared in my communication last week, if you see behavior – on-campus or off – that you feel should be addressed, please use our COVID-19 form, available online. In addition, you can now call or text (see email). This line is monitored by Security. Reports received on it are addressed immediately if needed, and in all cases will be routed to the Dean of Students Office.

Our goal remains, and always has been, education with these protocols. It is not for ourselves that we take these steps. We do it for each other. We do it for the most vulnerable in our community, in our circles of friends, and in our own families. What we do off-campus is just as important as what we do on campus, and it is up to each of us to do the right thing.  

Be well.

Cor ad cor loquitur.

– Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D., President

Task Force Fall 2020

Students, Faculty, and Staff Pledge 2020-'21

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.
