Learning Together Safely
We are grateful for the vaccines and safety measures that allow us to safely come together for classes, seminars, programs, and events.
We have implemented policies that comply with both the letter and spirit of current government recommendations and mandates. These policies align with those of most institutions of higher education and comply with best practice.
Our COVID-19 Vaccine Policy
Our priority is the health of our students, faculty, staff, and guests.
All faculty, presenters, and staff are required to be fully vaccinated. We encourage visitors to do the same, unless there is a medical exemption.
We encourage vaccine boosters as available.
Following current City of Chicago and State of Illinois guidelines, masks are now optional. We encourage you to respect those who choose to mask and keep their distance.
We practice CDC-recommended procedures including:
- Sanitation and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces.
- Volume of outside air increased.
- Sick time benefits have been increased to allow sick employees to stay home and not lose pay.
