Additional Information for Employees

The guidelines on this site outline the required safety procedures for staff and faculty working in-person on Swarthmore’s campus during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In developing these guidelines, the Workforce Planning Group adhered to the principles President Val Smith established for the College’s approach to navigating the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic:

  • We will hold paramount the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff members.
  • We will continue to deliver to our students the highly engaged, intellectually enriching educational experience that is foundational to all that we as a College do. 
  • We will make decisions about College finances and operations with empathy, compassion, and humanity and work to maintain operational continuity and retain employees to the greatest extent possible.

It is imperative that you read and understand the protocols outlined on this site, including College vaccination and masking guidelines and requirements. This information is intended to help to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading on our campus and support the health and safety of our campus community. Adherence to these guidelines is required.
