Update for Fall 2020: Almost There!
Aug 6, 2020, 11:05 AM
We are almost there!
I hope and trust your summer has had many bright spots, and I also hope you’re ready to get the fall semester underway in (now) less than two weeks.
Students – you received an email earlier this week with instructions on filling out a simple form to share your preferences about remote or in-person instruction for each of the classes for which you are registered. If you have not already done so, please take a moment and complete that task. It will help all of us be ready for a safe and engaging semester.
Faculty and staff are looking forward to reconnecting next week (in-person and remote) for August Seminar days – the semi-official start of the fall semester. Faculty and staff are receiving those details this week, but I can share that Anderson Auditorium will be able to accommodate several of us who would like to be in-person for these days. We’ll wear masks, and maintain prescribed physical distancing, but we’ll be together as a community as we continue to negotiate our world. In the opening session on Tuesday, August 11, you’ll hear updates from the Task Force Fall 2020 group, and the Dismantling Racism Task Force. We’ll also have some college updates, and some time for Q & A.
In the coming days, all of us will have the opportunity to make a commitment to our community, and to each other, by taking the necessary steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We’ll deliver that pledge electronically, so you won’t miss it. This is not a legally binding document, and you won’t need an attorney to review it. We want it to be deeper than that; this pledge makes a statement about you, and about the part each of you plays in the health, safety, and vitality of this community. Each and every member of this community belongs here, should feel welcome here, and is integral to our mission to educate students for meaningful personal and professional lives. We do that best when each of us brings their gifts to the mix. In this Year of Community let’s hold each other up, reach out when we see a need, and become the model of a community that lives and learns together.
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.
