Fall 2021 Return-to-Campus

Return-to-Campus Information

College departments are working through the return-to-campus process. In order to be in compliance with this policy, employees (both staff and faculty) must complete two steps before returning to campus:

  1. Complete the vaccination protocol by either uploading proof of full vaccination or by requesting and receiving an approved exemption. If you are staff, your approval would come from the Office of Human Resources; if you are faculty or an instructor, your approval would come from the Office of the Provost.
  2. Receive a negative COVID test within the three business days prior to returning to campus. Employees must schedule their own tests online through Smith's testing center. More information on the testing program can be found on the COVID-19 testing page. The testing center is located in the Carroll Room in the Campus Center. Staff should also coordinate with their manager ahead of their return to confirm their eligibility and the date of their return to campus, within their assigned phase.

Health and safety policies are set by the college, and departments cannot implement local protocols counter to those policies. Please note that the college will continue to follow public health guidance and update its policies as needed.
