College joins White House vaccine challenge

The College has accepted President Joe Biden’s invitation for colleges and universities to join him in the White House’s efforts to end the COVID-19 pandemic by encouraging vaccination for all eligible individuals.

By accepting this challenge, college administrators agree to:

Engage every student, faculty and staff member by ensuring that every member of the campus community knows they are eligible for the vaccine and has the resources to find one.
Organize the campus community by identifying champions for vaccine efforts across campus and implementing a plan to get as many members of the college community vaccinated as possible.
Deliver vaccine access to all by bringing vaccines to campus, making it easy for students, staff and faculty to get vaccinated.

Though the college is just now accepting this challenge, these priorities have been at the forefront Wartburg’s COVID-19 response since the vaccine became available. Click here to learn more.


In an email recently, Dean Dan Kittle encouraged students to become fully vaccinated before returning to campus for Fall Term. Students who are unvaccinated Sept. 1:

Will be strongly encouraged to wear a mask on campus.
Must quarantine for 7 to 10 days following contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Could be required to partake in regular COVID-19 testing if college leaders deem it necessary to continue safely with campus activities because of an increase in the number of cases in the community or on campus, or because of the emergence of more troublesome variants.
