Interim Policies and Guidance

This page provides policy and best practice for student organizations, fraternities/sororities, and Student Activities Events to ensure the safety of our community. If you work with an inter/national organization that provides stricter guidance, abide by the more stringent guidelines.

Organization leadership, fraternity/sorority leadership, and student activities staff (here on collectively referred to as Student Organizations) are expected to know and abide by the Carroll University Interim COVID-19 Guidelines. These guidelines are updated or reaffirmed monthly.

Information about COVID-19 symptoms and testing can be found on the Health Services portal pages.

The Center for Disease Control studies and recommendations for preventing the spread of COVID-19 inform our decisions regarding Student Organization requirements and guidelines. Based on CDC information, our assumptions include:

In addition, we expect Carroll students and Student Organizations to take responsibility for assessing potential risk of their members AND of communities that our members may meet. Someone in the organization or a potential guest may be at higher risk of complications due to underlying health concerns. Taking the necessary precautions for these members and guests will keep everyone safe.
