Wolverine Culture of Care

The Division of Student Life worked closely with U-M students across campus this summer to develop the Wolverine Culture of Care — a commitment to keeping the U-M campus community as healthy and safe as possible. We encourage you to review and post these guidelines below as a reminder on how to best care for yourself and to be respectful of your impact on the health of others.

We also invite all U-M students, faculty and staff to get involved and help us stop the spread by volunteering for the Community Sampling and Tracking Program and using the university's COVID Reporting Line (734-647-3000).

Students living off campus can help stop the spread by updating their address and phone numbers so they can be contacted if a concern is reported.

Wolverine Culture of Care

To provide the best campus experience possible in the context of this historic threat to the health and well-being of all, we understand that consistently making safe and healthy choices to keep the entire community as safe as possible is a collective responsibility shared by students, faculty, staff and Ann Arbor residents. As such, Wolverines are committed to care for ourselves and to be respectful of our impact on the health of others, by committing to the following:

1. Monitor, Self-Isolate & Participate

Protect the community through vigilant self-monitoring for symptoms and self-isolate if/when symptoms do develop or you are in contact with someone with symptoms. Avoid and/or minimize travel and the hosting of guests throughout the semester. Participate in testing, isolation/quarantine and contact tracing as suggested by health care providers and required by public health officials.
