Letter from the Vice President for Campus & Student Life

Return to: Student Handbook 2021-2022  

Dear Students:

On behalf of dedicated administrators, faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Andrews University. As an amazing child of God, you will greatly enrich our campus community.

By selecting Andrews you have chosen to be part of a campus culture that is shaped by the Christian faith and values of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Whether or not you share our particular faith perspective, we invite you to live within the values that make Andrews a welcoming and supportive environment for all who seek a faith-based education.

Andrews University is more than brick and mortar—it’s a community. Whether you are a graduate student or an undergraduate student, we want Andrews University to feel like home. As a residential university, many students live on campus in one of our residence halls or University apartments.

Students learn not only in the classroom but through a wide variety of out-of-class faith and learning opportunities—on campus, in the community and around the world. Andrews University offers a transformative educational experience designed to motivate you to reach your God-given potential in all aspects of your life—body, mind and spirit—and to inspire you to serve others.

In this “Handbook,” you will find the Community Values and Code of Student Conduct which each student agrees to respect. I also personally call you to embrace four great cares. (1) Care for yourself as a unique creation of God. (2) Care for each other, for all are precious in His sight. (3) Care for the University—its mission, values and property. (4) And, most importantly, care for your Creator, in whom we live and have our being.

As we embark upon the 2021–22 school year, we are still navigating the impact of a global public health pandemic. Please review the Andrews University Community Covenant of Care. The Covenant outlines the shared responsibility for every member of our community for the health and safety of our campus.

As we “Seek Knowledge and Affirm Faith” we are also “World Changers for a Changing World,” extending grace, compassion and care to ourselves, others and the Andrews community.

With care,

Frances Faehner, PhD

Vice President for Campus & Student Life

 

Andrews University Community Covenant of Care

Return to: Student Handbook 2021-2022  

In humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3

As a Seventh-day Adventist Christian learning community, Andrews University is guided by the teachings and example of Jesus. In that context, we regard our personal rights and preferences as secondary to His call to care for the wellbeing of others, even and especially as we emerge from the global risks and impact of COVID-19. Even as restrictions and guidelines change, we continue to have shared responsibilities (see our Statement of Responsibility) for which each one of us as a member of the Andrews community will be held accountable.

While it is not possible to eliminate the risk of COVID-19 infection completely (see Statement of Responsibility), each one of us as students, faculty and staff must take significant steps to help stop the risk and spread of COVID-19 infection by persistently protecting and caring for our own and others’ health and safety.

Therefore, you, as a valued member of our campus community, are asked to help create a culture of care by practicing our Andrews University Community Covenant of Care. A violation of this Covenant  constitutes grounds for discipline and may also violate the Code of Student Conduct, the Faculty Working Policy, and the Employee Handbook, which may lead to further disciplinary processes.

We will continue to monitor our protocols in light of guidance from the CDC and public health officials.  We also seek your understanding as this may lead to additional new measures or the relaxing of some other requirements over time.

The Covenant includes, but may not be limited to:

CARE FOR MYSELF

Good hygiene

Even as we prepare to move beyond the significant global threat of COVID-19, the virus and its variants are still present in many places, and it’s important to continue to practice good hygiene by washing my hands often with soap and water, using hand sanitizer and coughing or sneezing into the bend of my arm or a tissue.

Healthy habits

It’s also important to continue to practice healthy habits to build my immune system (through proper diet, exercise, sleep, hygiene, water intake, fresh air) and seek support and care for my mental health.

Testing

If you’re not yet vaccinated (or don’t have acquired immunity from a previous COVID-19 infection), you must undergo screening testing at the start of the semester, and monthly thereafter. There will no longer be COVID-19 screening testing available on campus, and unvaccinated students and employees will be responsible for arranging for these periodic COVID-19 tests locally at their own expense. Faculty and staff must notify HR, and students must notify Student Life, immediately upon learning of a positive test so that contact tracing and discussions of potential reasonable accommodations may commence. Individuals testing positive for COVID-19 will be required to follow all CDC and Berrien County Health Department recommendations, which may include isolation and/or quarantine for a recommended period. Any student or employee who declines to comply with this testing requirement may be excluded from campus.

CARE FOR OTHERS

Physical distancing

If you’re not yet vaccinated (or don’t have acquired immunity from a previous COVID-19 infection), it’s important that you respect personal space and maintain appropriate physical distance on- and off-campus (ideally, six feet/two meters), especially when you’re in public indoor spaces. We understand that physical distancing may not always be possible in some indoor spaces that have fixed seating or in academic settings.

Face covering

If you’re not yet vaccinated (or don’t have acquired immunity from a previous COVID-19 infection), you are required to use an appropriate face covering when you’re indoors and in public spaces. It may also be necessary to ask all individuals to wear masks at certain times, such as in University buses and other transportation. Please be willing to support these expectations.

Self-isolation

If you’re not yet vaccinated (or don’t have acquired immunity from a previous COVID-19 infection), please stay home if you have been exposed to someone who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19. Whether you have been vaccinated, have acquired immunity or not, if you are sick, you are required to stay home or in your residence space. You should use the  #CampusClear app to record symptoms on the days you feel ill (you no longer need to make daily reports on #CampusClear if you’re not ill.

CARE FOR ANDREWS COMMUNITY

Clean environment

Please continue to help keep everyone healthy by actively participating in cleaning and sanitizing frequently used shared common equipment and surfaces.

Signage

Carefully adhere to instructional signage and University guidelines as communicated via email and online websites.
