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 – Looking Up

Dear Students and Colleagues –

A brief update here – I know you are all deep into the work of the semester.

Students -  this is your last reminder (from me, anyway) to apply for Emergency Relief Funds. All students - undergraduate and graduate, part-time and full-time—may apply for these funds, which are available to offset costs and hardship brought on by the pandemic. You cannot receive relief funds if you do not apply for them.  Review of those applications begins at the end of the day on Monday, March 1, 2021. If you have questions, please contact Edgewood Central. 

See what I did there? Monday, March 1, 2021? A new month is almost upon us, and there’s great stuff happening on campus as we begin to emerge from a typical Wisconsin winter. Our students perform “The Theory of Relativity” this weekend. Friday, there’s a great in-person opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to enjoy “A Winter Wonderland” right here on campus – complete with a bonfire and “iceless” ice skating. And our student-athletes – now able to compete – are ramping up their seasons, including our Women’s Basketball team who play two games this weekend at Wisconsin Lutheran with the NACC Championship on the line. 

I call attention to these events not because we’re returning to ‘normal.’  I hope you agree that we want to be better than what was considered normal. The improving weather, the lengthening of daylight hours, our students engaged both in and out of the classroom – these are signs of a community that continues to put in the time and energy into shaping a healthy and vibrant Edgewood College. For that I am grateful to all of you.

Let’s keep it up, wear our masks, and be there for each other  

Be well.

Cor ad cor loquitur.

-Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D.
