All members of the Terrier community are expected to take an active role in promoting the safety, health and wellbeing of every community member. That means abiding by all health and safety directives from federal, state, local and college officials through the current semester and beyond and encouraging others to do the same.

Everyone has a role in protecting themselves, their friends and family, and the SFC communities. By taking this pledge, and continuing to demonstrate kindness and compassion towards one another, we will continue to be #StrongerTogether.
The Terrier Safety Pledge comprises a set of expectations and safety measures for all members of our community.  We will continue to monitor the recommendations associated with the global pandemic and make appropriate adjustments to the Pledge as needed. 
Stay Safe.  Stay Healthy.  Do Your Part.

I understand that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19, which is a contagious disease, in any place where people are present, including College residence halls, common areas, classrooms, and in other areas on campus; and despite the safety measures The College has instituted, The College cannot guarantee that members of the campus community will not be exposed to and/or contract COVID-19 or other illnesses.

The safety of our community is a shared responsibility, and my actions can put myself and others at risk. I understand that failure to comply with these directives may result in a referral to the Office of Student Affairs for violation of the Code of Student Conduct, which can be found in the CORD and the Student Code of Conduct COVID-19 Addendum
