Winter Session Visitors Policy

The University’s Fall 2020 Policy on Visitors to Campus is amended for the period between November 21, 2020 to February 2, 2021 (“Winter session”) as follows:

  1. While it is anticipated that University-related visitors (those invited to visit campus, regardless whether the University is paying for the visit) will remain limited during the Winter session due to budget constraints as well as public health measures, the Visitors to Campus Policy will be eased during the Winter session. Visitors such as those invited to discuss potential employment opportunities, or to participate in small gatherings aimed at furthering the University’s core mission of teaching and research, are among examples of those who will be welcomed to campus during the Winter session, pursuant to this Policy.
  2. Visitors during the Winter session must be approved in advance by the responsible Dean or Vice President.
  3. All visits should comply with the University’s Gathering Policy and associated Meeting and Event Guidelines.
  4. The University recognizes that small informal gatherings that can be accommodated within a unit’s or department’s regularly assigned space may not rise to the level of formality anticipated by the Meeting and Event Guidelines. Even in these situations, however, University hosts and visitors must observe University requirements reflected in the University’s COVID-19 Policy.

All other provisions of the Visitors to Campus Policy remain in effect for the Winter session.

Effective November 21, 2020 – February 2, 2021
