RWU COVID-19 Student Community Pledge – Updated for Spring

All students who will be on campus this semester will be required to read and sign the Roger’s Compact pledge, which has been updated for Spring.

Please read the pledge completely, print (if possible at home) and sign the first page of the compact and bring it with you to check-in at the Fieldhouse. If that isn’t possible, we will have printed copies available. Please note that students under 18 will need a parent/guardian signature in addition to their own signature.

The compact was developed by students, faculty and staff participating in the 'How to Live' working group and reviewed and approved by the Reopening Roger Steering Committee, members of Student Senate, President Miaoulis and University Administration. 


'Staying Healthy in a Changing Environment' Mandatory Online Training

New for spring semester is a mandatory, short online course that provides learners with information about the COVID-19 virus including symptoms and tips for personal safety, and information to support mental well-being.

Students can expect an email with a link to the training, which must be completed by Jan. 31.
