Let’s do this together! As we prepare to reopen campus and begin a new academic year, all members of the Radford family are invited to participate in the “Healthy Highlanders” Initiative, which calls on members of the campus community to sign an honor pledge attesting to your commitment to putting your own health and the health of others first. The pledge can be viewed and completed at https://www.radford.edu/content/radfordcore/home/reopening/healthy-highlanders.html and reads as follows.
I pledge to do my part to protect and promote the health, safety, and well-being of the campus and the community. I further pledge to exercise care, compassion, flexibility, integrity, and respect in being a Healthy Highlander by complying with University expectations and Commonwealth requirements.
I will exercise good hygiene with frequent handwashing. I will wear a mask in required areas and instances when physical distancing is not possible. I will make the COVID-19 Symptom Tracking part of my regular routine and complete it on a daily basis. If I am ill or feeling ill, I will stay home and consult with a healthcare provider as necessary and appropriate. I will continuously monitor updates from the University regarding operations and requirements, as well as guidance from public health officials.
Students, as well as faculty and staff, are strongly encouraged to electronically sign the “Healthy Highlanders” honor pledge before beginning the Fall 2020 semester. The pledge provides an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to share why they are pledging to be a “Healthy Highlander” and why it is important for others to do the same. Highlanders, together, we can stay healthy! #HealthyHighlanders
