This applies for all universities..If it’s mandated for students in order to be allowed to attend classes ,then no questions about it’s definitely mandatory for ALL .. I mean EVERYONE !! There should be exceptions !

Our students deserve to be back in the classroom, and this is the best and safest way to accomplish that.

I'm signing because I miss my in-person academic community but I don't feel safe in my building until I can be confident that everyone in it is vaccinated, regardless of their role at RU.

Dogged perseverance of individual rights does not justify jeopardizing the general welfare.

Requiring all faculty/staff to be vaccinated is the easiest way to guarantee that Rutgers does not need to return to fully online classes in the fall. Really, it’s a no-brainer…

I want to get back to normal life. Meeting students and having classes in person. Getting vaccinated is the best thing we can do for this.

I'm signing because I believe that all should be required to immunize for COVID and I believe the faculty should be setting the same tone about ridding this world of COVID as is expected of students.

It does not make sense to just ask students to be vaccinated and not faculty and staff. What is the scientific evidence of this strategy if you are not having everyone fully vaccinated? what is the point of only asking students? It just takes one person to disseminate the virus all over the Campuses and get Covid spread all over.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I understand that we currently do not require this of faculty and staff because of collective bargaining agreements, but I’d say that many union members would be willing to renegotiate this part of our contracts. I am one of them.
