UConn Promise: Staying Safe Together

Members of the UConn community are signing up for the UConn Promise to keep ourselves and each other safe. ()

The Fall 2020 semester will be unlike any other in the history of the University of Connecticut: thousands of UConn students, faculty, and staff will be combining our core mission of teaching and research and the traditional college experience with the awareness that we need to do everything we can to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community. 

Our re-entry into the fall starts with a commitment to the safety of ourselves and our colleagues. The University has created the UConn Promise, which promotes behaviors among our community members to maintain a safe and respectful environment. The UConn Promise includes committing to public health measures such as wearing masks, as well as encouraging Huskies to look out for one another, especially as COVID-19 has been coupled with heightened discrimination for some of our faculty, staff, and students. We started by asking our undergraduate students to make this promise. We now ask all faculty, staff, and graduate students to review the promise and make a commitment to follow these guidelines to promote the well-being of UConn Nation.
