Protect the Pack Pledge
The Wesleyan College experience in the midst of the COVID pandemic is about so much more than earning a degree; it is about creating a community that is responsible, safe, and sustainable. We have a unique, incredible opportunity to show what a true caring academic community can be.
Each one of us will sign a pledge to Protect the Pack. We pledge to monitor ourselves for symptoms of the coronavirus and stay away from others if we have symptoms, wear a cloth or procedural face mask when in the presence of other people, keep a safe distance between each other, and observe best practices of hygiene and cleaning.
Our guidelines will follow scientific research and best practices about COVID-19 for our community, even if those guidelines require more stringent rules for interaction than our region, state, or nation.
We will hold one another accountable for following the guidelines for safety in our community.
We will put safety first, so that we can accomplish all other goals for our academic community.
We will do these things because it is our civic duty and a sign of our commitment to each other. We can do these things because we are a small academic community on a large campus. We must do these things because the world needs our graduates: nurses, teachers, artists, leaders, accountants, and so much more. This is our opportunity to lead the way, to be the solution, to model for others what a safe, responsible, caring community looks like. Welcome back! Protect the Pack! We are One Wesleyan!
