1.19.21: Student Return to Campus Training and Statement Email

A message sent to Lehigh students. 

Dear Students,

All undergraduate and graduate students who will be accessing campus, living in the Bethlehem area, or visiting the Bethlehem area are required to complete the COVID-19 Required Spring 2021 Student Expectations training and acknowledge the Statement of Expectations.  While we understand all students do not plan to return to campus, the training and Statement of Expectations include clarifying information about COVID-19 related expectations under the Student Code of Conduct that will be particularly important for any students living in or visiting the local area. The materials for both of these requirements are housed in Course Site, under the title COVID-19-Required Spring 2021 Student Expectations.  A Lehigh log-in is required to access this site. 

In order to ensure that residence hall access is active, students who will be living on campus are required to complete this training at least 3 days prior to arriving on campus.  Students living off campus or those who plan to visit campus are expected to complete the training at least 24 hours before coming to campus.  These timelines are intended to help students avoid any challenges accessing residential or academic spaces on campus.   

The Spring 2021 semester can only be a success if we all work together to build a safe and healthy environment. This training, which contains updated information and expectations, is a vital first step. Please take the time to complete both the training and carefully review the Statement of Expectations so that we know everyone has received this information that is so important to our community.

Students who fail to complete this training will not be permitted to access academic buildings and other campus facilities. For those who previously had card access, failure to complete this course by January 29 will result in card access being revoked until the training is successfully completed. Questions concerning this training can be directed to indost@lehigh.edu.

Thank you, and we look forward to working together toward a safe and successful spring semester.
