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 Parents from the New President

Title : An Update for Parents from the New President
Posting Date / Time : Jun 5, 2020, 10:30 AM
Dear Parents – 

First of all, “hello!” You don’t know me, but it is my sincere hope that in the coming months we will have an opportunity to meet. Thank you for your investment in excellence in teaching and learning, and in the incredible opportunity Edgewood College provides your student.

I’m new – in fact, this is my first week as President here. But there’s a lot going on – let’s get to it.

One of the things that attracted me to Edgewood College is our commitment to community. The bonds of our community have been tested lately and we need more than ever to show our commitment to the wellbeing of each member of our community. The two tests that are the most salient are the COVID-19 pandemic, and the murder of George Floyd and its aftermath. Both of these events are changing our society and both will influence our return to school in the fall.

Margaret Noreuil, Interim V.P. for Academic Affairs, and I are leading a task force to shape our return to campus this fall. We remain committed to on-campus, in-person living and learning at Edgewood College, beginning with welcoming our newest students to the residence halls on Sunday, August 16. As you likely know classes for the fall semester are scheduled to begin Wednesday, August 19, 2020.

This task force has been gathering information from faculty, and we have several meetings (via WebEx) slated for the coming days. We are open to doing whatever we need to do to deliver an experience that will be better than what your student experienced during the Spring – the strangest semester in our lifetimes (we hope!). That said, this fall will look different than the fall of 2019. We will continue to heed the recommendations of the CDC, as we do today, and follow the direction of our public health officials. We will spare no effort to allow for the safe return of your student to campus. As is true with every semester, the health and the safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our highest priority. And we will expect our community to show our commitment to one another by taking reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, as guidance from health professionals dictates. 

Even with feelings of optimism and preparation for the fall semester, we have once again been shaken by an injustice that needs to be addressed: the murder of George Floyd. My predecessor, President Emerita Gevelinger, and I shared a statement with our students, faculty, and staff (and beyond) last week. Racism tests our community as much as any virus. We must work together to remove this virus from our community.

We look forward to welcoming your student to the Year of Community at Edgewood College. If you have any questions or concerns about your student, please reach out to my colleague Dr. Heather Harbach, V.P. for Student Development/Dean of Students, at deanofstudents@edgewood.edu or 608-663-2212.

And be sure to visit www.edgewood.edu/eagle-families.

– Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D., President

P.S. – if you’re inclined, you can learn a bit about me online, on our website. Thanks!
