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

During the COVID-19 pandemic, GGU moved all classes and services online. But did you know that GGU has been offering online classes to students since 1993? Instructional designer Kate Hance joined GGU in 1999 and reflects on how online courses have changed. 🖥️

"GGU started really early with online learning and instructional design long before most institutions. The ability to collaborate on a virtual white board wasn’t there 20 years ago! It’s a lot easier now for students to work, collaborate, and create content together. Communication used to be more difficult because you would have to use chat boards. With the advent of Zoom, instant messaging, and more responsiveness in online classes, we can focus on the social connection and the collaborative work that helps everyone understand the concepts they are learning. 👩🏿‍💻 👨🏿‍💻

The online program has always reached students who wouldn’t be able to go back to school without these flexible technology-supported options that allowed them to get a degree, improve their life, and do something that they didn’t have the opportunity to do before. For me, that’s the real purpose of technology, to meet people where they are and help people meet their own goals." 🎓

I was the beneficiary of GGU’s online learning technology investments when I was pursuing my M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communication (2011-2013). So grateful to have been able to learn from GGU’s wonderful professors while still working full time - and living all the way in Indiana!

USAID worked with Mindanao State University-General Santos Campus, Palawan State University, and Ateneo De Zamboanga University to establish an Urban Development Learning Program that will enhance the skills and knowledge of local urban planning experts by linking the practical experience of local government with the technical expertise of these universities. From July to August 2021, USAID and GGU hosted separate workshops to align the curriculum of each partner university to the needs of their respective local governments and set concrete steps for short to long-term implementation. Congrats to GGU and USAID on this exciting collaboration! 📣 🌎 ... See MoreSee Less
