The recommendations and requirements compiled by DePauw University are the result of months of continuous deliberation and expert consultation. They represent significant efforts to minimize the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 on our campus, and maximize the University’s ability to offer a vibrant residential experience for our students throughout the semester. These guidelines express expectations of student behavior, convey a respect for group living, provide for protection of individual rights and promote health and safety.
Students who do not abide by University Health Practice Requirements will be reviewed by Student Affairs or Academic Affairs as appropriate. The Student Handbook and Community Standards Process will be utilized to provide procedural rights and fair process for students who do not follow DePauw’s health requirements.
These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated 8.16.21)
