We are required to collect and maintain attendance records for students and employees who will be on campus for any period of time. The purpose of this requirement is to assist with contact tracing, such that if we learn from public-health officials that a member of our community has tested positive for COVID-19, we can quickly assess who on our campus may have been exposed to the virus.
For this reason, your faculty will be taking attendance at each in-person class session. Please note that the attendance-tracking requirement is not related to course grades. While engagement and participation are important parts of a PLU educational experience, those elements of your learning will be assessed in ways other than attendance tracking.
Students must complete the Wellness Check-In prior to coming to campus or participating in a university activity.
