How can I Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up effectively on campus?  Wear your mask! Masks should cover your nose and mouth and should be worn indoors in public spaces and outdoors when you can not effectively be physically distant  from others. If you do not own a mask, you may purchase one in the Campus Store. Back Up: practice physical distancing by leaving 6 feet between you and others. Wash up: wash your hands often. 

What should I do if I was exposed to someone with COVID-19?  Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the Dean of Students Office and follow any instructions they provide to seek medical care or to quarantine. 

What should I do if I see another student who isn't wearing a mask? Remember, this is the year of community.  Please remind them nicely to wear their mask. We are all doing this for each other. Should you have questions, you may contact the Dean of Students Office

How will office hours be managed? All support services are still fully available to you; some are just offered in a different way. For example:  

  • All seating areas for Phil’s and Wingra have been spaced out for social distancing. Also, Stations that used to be self-serve are now either served by Dining Staff or are single packaged items.  
  • Health Services will see students for non-COVID concerns by appointment only. Personal counseling will be provided via telehealth. 
  • Current information on library services during COVID-19 is available on on the library website.


An Update for Fall 2020

Title : An Update for Fall 2020
Posting Date / Time : Jul 9, 2020, 16:00 PM
Dear Students and Colleagues –

I hope and trust this update finds you well.

Earlier this week, Public Health Madison & Dane County enacted Emergency Order #8, which among other steps requires that we all wear a mask when indoors (other than in our own homes) in Dane County. That order goes into effect at 8:00 am, Monday, July 13, 2020. The good news: we’ve been doing that here on campus since late May. The order also rolls back the maximum number of people in a room to 10, with social distancing in place. Our Task Force Fall 2020 continues to take steps to ensure our faculty, staff, technology, and facilities are positioned to ensure the best possible experience for our students. Circumstances may change, orders may be enacted and lifted, but our commitment to our students will not falter.

And that includes our commitment to our international students, in the United States to pursue their educational goals. The announcement from our nation’s government this week has been unsettling for all of us. We stand firmly against policies that seek to divide us, as I shared in a message to our Congressional delegation this week. Our colleagues in our Center for Global Education will stay in close touch with you as this situation evolves.

The Academic Task Force, led by Margaret Noreuil, Interim V.P. for Academic Affairs, continues its preparation for fall semester. In each academic unit (department, division, etc.) one or more faculty members have been identified to serve as a technology “point person,” to assist in problem-solving, enhancements, and other matters related to technology. You’ll recall we will deliver classes in a  synchronous format: faculty may be in the classroom or lab (or remote), students may be in the classroom (or in their residence hall room, or off-campus housing) but classes take place in real-time.

In the next two weeks or so, we’ll offer ‘Town Halls’ for students (and parents if they wish) to answer questions and address topics like living in the halls this fall, commuting to and from campus, and taking classes in this highly-flexible format. Watch your email for information on those – they are coming up fast, as is the start of classes!

Until then, please remember to be well, and take care of yourself and each other. What we all do off-campus has an impact on our entire community. Show your family, friends, and fellow students you care about them by wearing a mask when and where it’s called for, and by following the recommendations of our public health professionals when it comes to social distancing.

Be well!

Cor ad cor loquitur.
