UW’s Response to COVID-19
With the well-being of all members of the university community our highest priority, we continue to closely monitor the coronavirus pandemic and act to reduce the risk to our students, faculty, and staff.
As the academic year draws to a close, here are a few reminders to help you stay safe this summer.
University Health Services is now able to offer vaccines to anyone who lives, works or studies in Wisconsin, including friends and family of UW–Madison students and employees. Drop-in vaccination is available although appointments are encouraged.
While much instruction has gone virtual, some classes with under 50 students continued in person, including many labs requiring hands-on learning. Take a look.
With summer just around the corner, and planning for our return to campus for the fall underway, some activities on campus will change after the end of spring semester. These modifications are informed by increasing vaccination rates, combined with more opportunities to be outside due to better weather.
We remain committed to providing our students the support needed to be safe, healthy, and successful.
Learn more about campus operations, workplace procedures and measures to protect employees and their families.
Our instructors remain committed to effective teaching. Resources, strategies and tools are available to guide instructors in working with alternative modes of course delivery.
Research is being restarted, with a focus on expanding on-site research and scholarly activities while minimizing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to our students, staff, faculty, and the larger Madison community.
All members of the UW–Madison community deserve to feel welcome, valued and safe. We do not tolerate harassment and discrimination, and racist behaviors and stereotyping are inconsistent with the values of UW–Madison. The Office of Compliance and Dean of Students Office provide resources and reporting options for students, faculty and staff.
