Community Standards

As part of the reopening process, we have great Community Standards for everyone to follow. These are based on guidelines from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health. This document will continue to be updated as guidance changes.


Community Pledge

To align the College’s health and safety expectations with the well-being of each member of our community, and to provide all Oles greater assurances as to what they can expect from each other in terms of a commitment to these standards, all students, faculty, and staff of St. Olaf College are required to acknowledge their agreement with the pledge.
