Catawba College will be fully in-person in the spring
We have long prided ourselves on being prepared for all eventualities – and instilling that mindset in our students. That’s why we have been successful in protecting our Catawba Family throughout the COVID-19 pandemic while continuing to provide a meaningful and rewarding educational experience for our students. This is a point of pride for the College and is a credit to everyone in our community.
Planning for a Successful SPRING 2022
Catawba’s policies and protocols remain rooted in ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and guests. Our Remain at Catawba plan will remain aligned and in concert with the State of North Carolina’s Phased Reopening Model, Governor Cooper’s relevant Executive Orders, and guidance from local officials, the North Carolina Department of Public Health and other agencies, and Federal officials such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Catawba will update our policies and plans as appropriate and as conditions evolve.
Requiring the COVID vaccination resulting in a high vaccination rate among our students, faculty, and staff will ultimately allow us to adjust our COVID public health protocols and most effectively protect the health and safety of our Catawba Family.
All students, faculty, and staff who will be on the Catawba College campus beginning January 1, 2022, are required to complete the required dosage of a COVID-19 vaccine at least two (2) weeks prior to returning to campus (being December 17, 2021), unless Catawba approves a request for exemption.
For more information, visit our Mandated Vaccination Policy page.
We are requiring all students, faculty, and staff to submit a negative COVID-19 test when you first return to campus regardless of vaccination status (this does not apply for our Catawba Online students).
For more information, see our Campus Update from Provost Rogers-Lowery on January 6.
