COVID-19 And The Student Campus Compact: A Social Contract for the New Normal

As COVID-19 rages on into the 2020-2021 academic year, students must buy into the new normal, including:

  • social distancing,
  • masks,
  • enhanced sanitation, and
  • a dramatic reduction in athletic, artistic, and social events.

You can create a Student Campus Compact to drive home the seriousness of the mandate. Students who want to come to campus must agree to the rules and regulations developed to keep the community healthy and safe. Some colleges and universities are additionally requiring students to sign waivers and releases.
