Bison S.A.F.E.: The University's Pandemic Response

Update: Thursday, May 18, 2023

As we have come to the end of the declared Federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), we have had an opportunity to review our campus experience over the past 3 years, and can report that after 42,000 vaccinations and 175,000 COVID tests, there have been no hospitalizations related to COVID, nor any COVID-related deaths as a result of campus transmission. As a result, several updates in this communication reflect our COVID-19 campus protocols for the 2023 Summer and Fall academic terms.

The University’s original pandemic response, which was named Bison S.A.F.E., was built with the goals of Bison S.A.F.E. at heart:

Supporting our community; Advocating for at-risk populations; Facilitating ethical, culturally sensitive, and inclusive research; and Educating the public on best practices for safety.
