The top priority of the University is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and campus community. The University will continue to develop and revise guidelines that address the expectations of all members of the community, personal safety practices, staffing options, workplace environments, emotional wellbeing, on-campus visitors, modification of facilities, and workplace education as we continue on-campus life. Now more than ever, it is imperative that the Chowan University community live and abide by the core values of the University.
This webpage is the source of information for on-campus living and learning. These published plans are continuously evolving. Please check back frequently as details and announcements are made. The University has also created firstname.lastname@example.org as a method to ask questions related to the reopening of the University that cannot be found on the related web pages.
At Chowan, students, faculty, and staff members live and work alongside each other. In addition, we are members of a larger community in Murfreesboro and the region. Being part of a community means considering the well-being of others as well as oneself. We ask that all members of our community share in personal responsibility to create and sustain a healthy living, learning, and working environment. We commit to Protect our Nest!
