Student Affairs Issues Public Health Guidance for Fall Semester

July 24, 2020

TCU faculty and staff are looking forward to students’ return to campus in a few weeks. In advance of their return, the university reiterated its plan for the health and safety of the community and outlined the actions expected from every community member when the campus reopens.

Kathy Cavins-Tull, vice chancellor for Student Affairs, said, “A successful semester requires that all community members participate in self-monitoring and common sense prevention strategies outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and endorsed by the university. We are very excited to have our students back on campus, but want to ensure everyone is healthy and focused on responsible actions.”

TCU’s Connected Campus safety practices are meant to protect our entire community of Horned Frog students, faculty and staff. A person’s symptoms may be very different—or even non-existent—from those of the grandparents they will visit, or a friend with underlying health issues. Following Protect & Prevent strategies protects students, faculty and staff as well as those they love.

The TCU Connected Campus plan addresses important topics like academic excellence and continuity, new support services and safety and campus spirit during a pandemic. The site will be updated regularly, so visit the site often to stay abreast of important information.

TCU takes the community’s health seriously and has provided detailed information in this document outlining TCU’s Public Health Guidance, which was researched and compiled by TCU’s public health policy group. While these strategies may be inconvenient to some, they are not difficult, and will make a big difference in our ability to stay healthy and on campus.

Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. will send more information next week about taking an active role in the health of our community. In the meantime, here is an FAQ based on recently received questions.

Another great resource for information is TCU’s coronavirus microsite, which includes all previous campus communications related to the pandemic and TCU’s response.
