Everybody has a part to play.

Over the past few months, we’ve seen just how important it is for everyone to do their part to protect the health and safety of others. As students, faculty, and staff return to the Atlanta University Center for the spring 2021 semester, we need everyone to commit to fulfill their unique role in helping to stem the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic on our campuses.

Each campus has worked hard to implement safeguards designed to provide public health guidance, but the most important safeguard is your pledge to take actions which can help keep the virus away.

Take the AUCC Responsibility Pledge and learn all you can about what we should expect from each other.
