Protect the Purple Pledge

Take the Pledge. Protect the Purple.

August 5, 2020

Let’s all do our part to protect our campus. Take the pledge. Share on social media. #ProtectThePurple

As the TCU community eagerly awaits the return of students and the start of the fall semester, the new Protect the Purple campaign will help ensure all Horned Frogs do their part to keep campus healthy and safe for everyone.

The success of the fall 2020 semester will require students, faculty and staff to take responsibility for the role each plays in the health of the entire Horned Frog community. Every member of the campus community is being asked to take the pledge to do their part for public health — and Protect the Purple. Check out a video of current students and a special alumnus encouraging participation.

“I value our Horned Frogs and the way they care for each other and for their TCU community. It is this spirit of caring and personal responsibility that will help keep us all safe and healthy on campus this semester,” Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. said in a letter to students.

The tripart pledge includes:

  • Protecting oneself by monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms and washing/sanitizing hands.
  • Protecting others by wearing a face covering, social distancing and staying home when sick or after exposure to someone with COVID-19 or other illness.
  • Protecting the Horned Frog community by keeping belongings and spaces clean, adhering to public health guidance, following instructional signs, respecting all community members and using civility in words and deeds.

Horned Frogs will see Protect the Purple lawn signs when they return to campus, and a copy of the pledge in the health kits for residential and local students. Those who sign the pledge will receive digital “swag” to share on social media.
