This website details the University's ongoing response to COVID-19 in the 2021-2022 academic year. While we are encouraged by the fact the campus community is more than 90% vaccinated, the University continues to monitor developments and will adjust health and safety protocols as appropriate. We appreciate the ongoing flexibility and perseverance displayed by Notre Dame students, faculty and staff. It is important that each member of our campus community continues to take care of themselves and others as we navigate this new phase of the pandemic.

Timely updates on policy changes and campus-wide communications will continue to be posted to this website. Additional information related to health and safety can be found in context across other University websites.

Faculty and Staff Vaccination Requirement

The deadline for the Faculty and Staff Vaccination Requirement was August 2, 2021. Any current faculty or staff member who has not updated their vaccination status should do so immediately. Faculty and staff who have not yet provided proof of vaccination, are required to report for weekly surveillance testing.

All new University of Notre Dame faculty and staff members are required to provide their vaccination status within two days of their employment start date.
