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.

Spring Semester Update - A Sign of Things to Come

Dear Students and Colleagues – 

On this date, exactly one year ago, Wisconsin Emergency Order #12, the “Safer at Home Order,” went into effect. One year later, here we are. We have learned a lot about ourselves, our teaching and learning styles, and I hope you’ll agree we’ve gained insight into what is truly important in our lives; our family, our friends, and our communities.

We are all aware of course that the pandemic is not over, and we continue to take the necessary steps to avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19. But look at what we have accomplished. We’ve managed the cases in our community, and continue to do so, and avoided significant disruptions to the conduct of this academic year. We are just past midterms for the spring semester, which means we’re heading into the home stretch. I ask you to think for a moment about what you were thinking one year ago on this date. And then fast forward to today and consider all that you have done – and all that your fellow students and colleagues have done – to get us to this spot. I hope that brings a smile to your face. It has not been easy, but getting to March 25, 2021 points to better days ahead.

At the end of last year, the College made the painful decision to cancel Commencement ceremonies. Commencement is the most significant ceremony we have, and that decision was not reached lightly. There were simply too many unknowns. Today, while there are still uncertainties ahead of us, we are committed to an in-person Commencement to celebrate our graduates. Late yesterday I announced the decision that this year’s Commencement will be in-person, outdoors, and on campus. We will continue to adhere to the protocols as defined by our public health officials. That’s a big reason why we’ll be outdoors, and a big reason why we’re staging a total of three ceremonies. Even with the uncertainties of the weeks ahead, we can (and will) control what we as a community can control. There will be limits of course related to how many of us can gather, etc., but we’ll create a day to honor our graduates (including those who were unable to celebrate last May), welcome at least some of their family members to celebrate with us, and we’ll do it right here. And it will be awesome.   

Be well and be safe. Wear your mask, and keep your circles tight. 

Let’s hold each other up as we all turn toward finishing the semester strong, and turn toward the better days ahead.

Cor ad cor loquitur.

-Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D.
