This policy outlines the COVID-19 community expectations for all undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Adherence to the standards set by Dartmouth to promote the safety and well-being of others on campus and in the surrounding community reflects the commitment we make to act responsibly as we face the challenges brought about by the coronavirus global pandemic. COVID-19 will continue to occur in our community this year, and it will be through the promises we make to one another to adhere to these standards that we can hope to contain the virus and maintain a robust and energized on-campus environment. Advancing the public good over individual preference is the means by which we can achieve our objective.
To reduce the risk to those accessing, or living, learning, and working on campus, as well as to our friends and neighbors in the surrounding communities, students must commit to following Dartmouth's expectations for conduct both on and off campus, as outlined in this set of Community Expectations. These expectations are based upon federal, state, and local guidance, and are subject to change in Dartmouth's sole discretion based on public health conditions.
We encourage students to follow closely information distributed by Dartmouth throughout the 2021–2022 academic year via email, social media, and on the Dartmouth Together website.
