On-Campus Program Health and Safety Policies

Last updated: October 12, 2021

What to Expect When Coming to Campus

We are thrilled to once again open our doors to learners and visitors on Appian Way. As we welcome Professional Education participants to the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) campus in 2022, we assure you that the health, safety, and well-being of our community remain our top priority. The number of COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts is low and continues to decline due to the state’s high vaccination rate. We are closely monitoring health and safety protocols as provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Massachusetts, and Harvard University, and we will continue to make adjustments in response to evolving public health guidelines.  

Please note that the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community remains our top priority through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Professional Education participants must adhere to all public health guidelines instituted by Harvard University and HGSE. All individuals accessing the HGSE campus are required to abide by the same policies as our faculty, staff, and students. Our current policy requires all participants in on-campus Professional Education programs to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to arriving on campus, present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from a test administered within 72 hours before arriving on campus, and adhere to indoor mask mandates as determined by the University. 
Due to the uncertainty of evolving public conditions, HGSE’s COVID-related safety requirements may be different when your program begins. We will provide all participants with current COVID-related safety requirements at least two weeks before the start of your program. Thank you for your understanding and attention to these details, as we continue to take the steps necessary to ensure the health and wellbeing of our community.
If you are enrolled in an on-campus program, please watch your inbox for important emails from the HGSE Professional Education program team. Information about HGSE’s coronavirus response and community expectations can be found on the HGSE website. Information about Harvard University's health and safety measures along with testing results can be found on Harvard’s coronavirus website.

Welcome to the HGSE community—we cannot wait to see you.
