Protect Purdue Pledge — Fall 2021

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Boilermakers have taken extraordinary and persistent steps to protect each other and our campus community.

As part of the Purdue community, I will continue to take responsibility for my own health and protect others, as well as our campus community, by helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other infections.



I Pledge To:


 1. Protect Myself

Get vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit valid proof OR successfully fulfill my routine surveillance testing responsibilities.

If I experience any symptoms of COVID-19, whether I am vaccinated or not, I will contact the Protect Purdue Health Center (PPHC) right away, quarantine in the meantime and follow additional instructions.

Take personal responsibility, access available resources and practice self-care for my mental health and overall well-being.


 2. Protect Others

Have a personal plan for proper isolation or quarantine should it be necessary and on-campus accommodations not be available.

If I am unvaccinated and exposed to an individual who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19, I will contact the Protect Purdue Health Center (PPHC) right away, quarantine in the meantime and follow additional instructions.

Adhere to evolving University COVID-19 safety protocols as communicated and posted.

Look out for others and encourage their faithful commitment to the Pledge.


 3. Protect Our Purdue Community

Stay home, away from others and contact the Protect Purdue Health Center (PPHC) if I feel ill.

Participate in testing and contact tracing as deemed medically necessary to preserve the wellness of our Purdue community and the continued operations of our University.
