Campus Readiness Group

Back to Salve

Salve Regina's campus readiness group is tasked with developing new procedures and guidance in response to the coronavirus pandemic, with a focus on the safety of our students, faculty, staff and the public we interact with.

The primary goals for our response to the coronavirus pandemic are to:

  • Protect the health, safety and well-being of our campus community.
  • Continue to advance the core teaching and learning mission of the University.
  • Practice our mercy values through a demonstrated commitment to the common good, working to build a more harmonious, just and merciful world through our decisions, leadership and action.

Our plans are aligned and consistent with local orders and ordinances of Newport County, as well as the state of Rhode Island's phased reopening model. Our plans also follow recommendations from the federal government, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Rhode Island Department of Health. Our knowledge and understanding of the virus continues to evolve, and our procedures and guidance will be updated as appropriate.
