July 22, 2020: MSU Community Compact on COVID-19

Dear Spartans,

As we continue the monumental task of safely bringing Spartans back to campus, I wanted to share with you a key part of our reopening efforts: The MSU Community Compact. Many units across campus played an important role in shaping this document, and I am grateful for all their efforts.

The compact, which applies to students, faculty, staff, alumni, contractors, vendors and visitors, asks all of us to take personal responsibility and follow certain standards and procedures as part of the MSU community. It covers expectations for face coverings, physical distancing, personal hygiene, adherence to signage and health guidance, self-monitoring and what to do if you are exposed to COVID-19. The compact also outlines the compliance measures put in place.

The compact is posted online on the Together We Will website, along with an accompanying document that provides the specific directives on expectations outlined in the compact. I encourage you to review the compact, and I thank you for doing your part as we move forward.
