These expectations are effective January 14, 2021, and apply to all students. The intent is to limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep students, faculty, and staff safer. Our community’s health and safety depend on compliance with these standards.
As scientific understanding of the virus increases, it is likely that guidance from public health authorities and directives from the government will change. Please note the following expectations:
College campuses present unique considerations, and Lafayette may deem it necessary to continue restrictions longer than mandated by authorities. Changes to these expectations will be shared via Lafayette Today and updated on this website (conduct.lafayette.edu).
These rules apply on and off campus. Students are expected to behave with care for the community by not hosting or attending large events nor failing to follow physical distancing guidelines.
All members of the community must comply with local, state, and federal guidelines and published procedures.
In situations where failure to uphold the expectations outlined above results in a health and safety risk to the community, immediate consequences may result. Expectations that fall into this category include participation in testing and contacting tracing, and following isolation and quarantine instructions. Immediate consequences include but are not limited to things like fob shutoff, restrictions from campus buildings including the recreation center, and/or revoking access to College applications such as OurCampus or the College portal, etc.
Intentional, significant, or repeated alleged violations of the Pard Pledge may be referred to the disciplinary process, in addition to or in lieu of imposing consequences as described above.
The disciplinary process may result in a range of sanctions, including suspension or even expulsion, in the most serious cases. Additional information on the disciplinary process can be found at conduct.lafayette.edu. An expedited process will remain in place during Spring 2021 for alleged violations of the Pard Pledge and/or the COVID Addendum to the Student Handbook.
