Policy Framework

An extensive team of experts from across the university was established to develop this plan, based on the overall Guiding Principle of putting the health, safety, and welfare of Marywood students and employees first. Given the uncertain environment in which we are operating, this plan was written to be as flexible as possible, providing options that best meet student needs. Recognizing that the total college experience is a blend of academics, along with social activities, we strived to strike a balance between the two. We have done our best to take into account the most current direction, guidelines, and mandates from multiple outside parties, including, but not limited to, various federal, state, and local government agencies, healthcare providers, the PA Department of Education, the CDC, and the NCAA. The information contained in this plan is provided in good faith; however, we are constantly monitoring events and will make any adjustments should it become necessary.

The Incident Command Team (ICT), a group of dedicated Marywood University administrators, has worked unceasingly to determine the best course of action for our students, who are at the center of what we do, for our faculty and staff, and for Marywood in general. The ICT is thoughtful, cautious, selfless, and honest in its deliberations. Moving forward, three COVID Action Teams, including Financial, Logistics, and Communications, have been formed to implement the ICT plans, relay communications to multiple constituencies, and provide updates in a timely manner.
