Together, Sustaining a Safe Campus Community

The extraordinary undertaking of operating a leading University during a pandemic is only possible with the collaboration of students, faculty, and staff. We must all work in concert to continue the pursuit of knowledge while taking informed action to mitigate the risks of the pandemic.

The challenges are significant. The strength of this community is greater.

In 200 years of history, the people of Colgate have demonstrated a profound resilience through moments of crisis, both local and global. Our Colgate ancestors have not only weathered such challenges, but often have emerged stronger, smarter, and more aware of and prepared for the challenges of the world in which we live.

Now is our moment.

Together we will pursue our educational mission. Together we will do what it takes to protect the members of our community. Together we will emerge as a stronger community, as stronger individuals, and as a stronger Colgate.
