COVID-19 VACCINATION SURVEY DATA

The College asked our community to answer a two question survey about their intentions for receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. This was promoted to Faculty and Staff through the 3/10/21 Preliminary Fall Update, the 3/11/21 Faculty & Academic Staff Brief, and the 3/18 People Center Update. Students were asked to complete the survey in the 3/10/21 Preliminary Fall Update, the 3/17 Registration Reminder from the Registrar and also received a text message reminder. If you haven’t already, and would like to complete the anonymous survey the link is here.

There were 1313 total responses from the survey (1093 students and 218 faculty/staff). 85% of respondents said they have been vaccinated or intend to get the vaccine as soon as it is available.

OIE UPDATE

As of now, we are planning to send students to our Dublin and Montreal campuses for the fall. We will carefully watch the status of the pandemic in both areas and plan to make a decision by mid-May if we need to change course.

After several months in Enrollment Management, helping to manage our record number of applications, Elin Melchior has returned to full-time work supporting Study Abroad.
