Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations

GGU will mandate vaccinations for Fall 2021.

:::

Dear GGU Community,

With at least a partial reopening of the building approaching in the coming months, we have been examining how we can best keep our learning and work environment as safe as possible once students and employees return.

The last many months have shown that vaccinations are crucially important in combatting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. With that in mind, GGU is joining more than 500 educational institutions in requiring that all students, faculty, and staff who will attend classes or work in-person on campus be fully vaccinated with approved vaccines. This requirement will go into effect on August 1.

We are doing this to allow us to safely resume on-campus instruction and activities, and to help reduce the risk of infection on campus and in the local community.

Vaccination appointments are now widely available through myturn.ca.gov, and many places now accept walk-ins with no appointments. The City and County of San Francisco also hosts a web site for those who live, work, or learn in the city that aids in finding vaccine appointments.

All students and employees will be asked to complete an online form that attests that they are fully vaccinated. Links to that form will be forthcoming. For purposes of this verification, you are considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after completing the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single dose of a one-dose vaccine.

Students who have not received full vaccination will not be permitted in the building; they will be able to take advantage of online classes offered across undergraduate, graduate and law school programs.

Employees who are unable or unwilling to receive a vaccine will not be allowed to be in the building and might be required to work remotely if their supervisor approves. Employees who will continue to work remotely, but who may also need to come to campus periodically, are subject to the same vaccination requirement.

We recognize the need for exceptions in some circumstances. If you believe that you qualify for an exemption (disability, medical, or religious), you will have an opportunity to state that on your attestation form.

Our vaccine mandate does not mean that we will abandon other safety protocols related to COVID-19. We have upgraded our HVAC system to provide substantially better air circulation, we continue comprehensive cleaning and disinfecting of our facilities, and we will abide by any regulations related to social distancing or masking.

We all have a role to play in ending this pandemic, and I appreciate your commitment to working together to keep the GGU community safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

David J. Fike
President
Golden Gate University

#GivingTuesday is TOMORROW! Please support our undergrad and MBA programs that offer the flexibility and accessibility that make a difference for students like Murat Wahab.​

"Getting an undergraduate degree and an MBA from GGU opened up many doors for me. The MBA equipped me with business knowledge and established meaningful long-term friendships with GGU classmates and alumni. Using the education I received combined with work experience in hospitality, banking, and non-profits, I launched my business, Hakim Saya, a licensed Finance Broker and Business Finance Consulting firm based in San Francisco."​

#GivingTuesday is just around the corner! Join us to support our undergraduate programs that offer the flexibility and accessibility that students like LJ Mizzi need to complete their degrees.​

"With young children, a full-time job and a hectic schedule, I needed the flexibility to attend classes late at night. I discovered GGU through my employer, Gilead Sciences, and it was everything I was looking for."​

"My BA in Business Management with a concentration in marketing gave me the foundational knowledge I didn’t know I was missing. The courses helped me better understand the core marketing concepts I was already using to perform my job and provided me with the tools and confidence I needed to advance my career."​

Meet Hang Nguyen, the new president of the Student Government Association for 2021-2022 and editor of @ggusocial

“I am in my last year of the MS Business Analytics program. After graduation, I'd like to work within finance on the analytics side especially in the changing world right now post-pandemic.

What I love about GGU is that it’s an intimate environment for students. It’s so easy to reach the faculty and they are passionate about helping you. It’s an environment where students can feel comfortable and that’s why I wanted to get involved in the SGA. I want to be that bridge between students and the leaders of the school and the faculty so that every student feels comfortable reaching out for help or support.

The SGA aspires to lead with honesty, integrity, and passion. We want to give as much as we can. We really hope to foster a more connected student body that draws students together because I know COVID separated us in some ways. We hope to host a lot of networking events, information events or just fun events that are beneficial to students and give them resources that they need. We really want to promote that student connection. That’s what we hope for the future.”

#GivingTuesday is almost here! A gift from you supports international students like Outstanding Student Award winner Supriya Upreti, MS Finance 2021.​

"I hail from a small state Uttarakhand in the foothills of The Himalayas, in India, where basic amenities are still considered a luxury, and girls' education is one of the concerning issues on which elections are fought. Students cross rivers and walk miles to get to school. Before moving to the United States in 2016, I never dreamed that one day I would be a first-generation immigrant to the United States and would get the opportunity to complete my education here. I feel really fortunate to receive this opportunity at GGU."​
