At Andrews, we face challenges head-on with determination, kindness and faith. Safety, Community and Inclusivity are the three guiding principles of Andrews University's philosophy for in-person operations. 

How We Will Continue to Stay Safe

As we have completed our fall semester of in-person instruction, and prepare for spring semester in the new year, we want to continue to make sure Andrews remains safe and open for the long haul. Please take a moment to review our framework for life at Andrews that will continue to focus on keeping us safe while learning together.

To read the whole policy, go to our COVID-19 Safety Plan page.

Residence Life

As residence life affects many of our students, we want you to know we remain committed to your continued safety throughout your experience here.

In order to safely return to in-person instruction and residential hall life, Andrews University developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan. Learn more

Navigating the Plan

As you can imagine, there are a lot of details to cover to make sure we stay safe and to prevent problems that might shut us down. We compiled these detailed plans in our COVID-19 Safety Plan document. Click on the appropriate image to jump to the section of the plan that deals with your topic of interest.
