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.
I’m writing today with an update for faculty and staff about how the university plans to operate during the fall semester.
Wisconsin is seeing a growing number of COVID-19 cases that are "variants of concern," officials said. Vaccination is essential to stop the spread.
The goal, says a leading UW researcher, is to “break through these silos and get us better public health outcomes and also more informed translational research.”
Effective June 2, campus policies for events, face coverings and outdoor physical distancing are being updated.
We remain committed to providing our students the support needed to be safe, healthy, and successful.

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.
