Back Together, Columbia

This fall we return back to campus with great enthusiasm. Prioritizing the overall health and wellness of our campus community and making them central to our planning is the key to a successful new academic year.

The college has updated its COVID-19 rules for Fall 2021 to ensure the health and safety of the members of the campus community. These measures are informed by guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Illinois, and the City of Chicago, and consultations with epidemiology experts from Rush University and the University of Chicago, our on-campus health professionals, as well as leadership of the faculty senate, the part-time faculty union, and the staff union.
