The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our campus community and represents an ever-changing situation. As we look to fall, we will act to put the academic mission and campus community well-being at the forefront of all pandemic planning efforts. Our plans will be grounded in our core academic mission and our main reason for being – our students.
Dear WCU Campus Community,
Like you, we have had many questions about the vaccine administration plans in North Carolina. We have been working with the UNC System to gain clarity about where and when vaccines will be available and who falls into the various prioritization groups. Yesterday, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) updated their vaccine prioritization framework. We are using that update to provide a FAQ for our faculty, staff, and students. See more information
It is important to note that the planning, distribution, and administration of COVID-19 is incredibly complex and is evolving on a daily, and sometimes hourly basis. With that in mind, please remember that the information we provide can change rapidly. We will continue to work with the UNC System and NCDHHS to gain clarity and will provide updates to the campus as needed.
Chancellor Kelli R. Brown
Shared community standards remind us that we each have personal responsibility for actions that may affect our own health and the health of our friends, colleagues, and the broader campus community. Our collective acceptance of this shared responsibility will be the most effective strategy we will have at our disposal in the challenging months ahead. We know that Catamounts Care and we have developed a set of standards to encourage everyone to put the well-being of themselves and others top of mind.
