Protect Purdue Plan

The Protect Purdue Plan is our comprehensive strategy to keep our campus and community safe by limiting the spread of COVID-19. It is driven by science and the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Indiana State Department of Health and other scientific organizations.

Led by the Protect Purdue Implementation Team, which works in tandem with our external Medical Advisory Committee and a talented team of Purdue subject matter experts, and with the oversight of the Purdue Board of Trustees, the plan outlines the policies, procedures, guidelines and tactics needed for the successful resumption of campus activities this fall.

Each part of this plan is aimed at offering the safest experience we can to protect all members of our Purdue community, especially the most vulnerable to the serious consequences of COVID-19. These are the small steps and major moves we’re all taking to protect ourselves, protect others and protect our Purdue community.

Hear from other Purdue experts on the importance of the Protect Purdue Plan in limiting the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our community.

No community as large as Purdue’s campus can guarantee an environment free of COVID-19, and the measures described in this plan recognize that reality. While much has gone into this effort to protect the Purdue community, we trust that all its members — faculty, staff, students and visitors alike — will ultimately take responsibility for their own health and safety and act in a manner that demonstrates respect and consideration for those around them, consistent with the Protect Purdue Pledge.
