CBU’s Return to Campus Plan
At this time CBU is strongly recommending that all new students be vaccinated, but there is no mandatory vaccination requirement to enroll as a new student. CBU will continue to monitor the situation and will adjust mandates as needed.
Christian Brothers University is a “mask friendly campus.”
This means that face masks are no longer required in indoor public spaces or residence halls. For in-class instruction, students will be informed that the professor has the authority to require masks in class. Employees may also require guests to wear masks in private offices. Academic offices will continue to maintain a supply of masks as needed. Anyone who is asked to wear a mask in these circumstances should graciously comply with the request.
Although mask-wearing is no longer required, everyone on the CBU campus is welcome to stay masked if they wish. As a Lasallian community that practices “respect for all persons,” all of us certainly respect their decision.
CBU strongly urges fully vaccinated individuals to receive a “booster” dose of vaccine if at least six months has passed since their second dose. Results of early studies indicate the booster doses may provide valuable protection against the Omicron variant, as well as the more common Delta variant. The CDC provides current locations where vaccines and boosters are available in Memphis.
Christian Brothers University is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all our students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
