At Shaw University, our first and highest priority is the safety and security of every member of the Bear community – students, faculty, staff, vendors, visitors and community partners.
We look forward to welcoming the community back to campus as we prepare for the Fall 2020 semester. To do that, every member of the community must do their part. This site outlines the protocols and procedures that have been put in place to facilitate
a safe return to campus. The plan is guided by recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) and the North Carolina Division of Public Health and is consistent with local orders and ordinances of the City of Raleigh and Wake County Department
of Public Health and the State of North Carolina.
COVID-19 is a novel and challenging experience for our country, state, and university. Therefore, Shaw University policies and procedures will continue to evolve as new information becomes available.
