CSCU to Require Students Who Will Be on Campus to Get COVID Vaccine

NBC Universal, Inc.

Connecticut State Colleges and Universities will be requiring all students who are participating in on-campus activities at CSCU institutions to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Board of Regents voted Thursday afternoon.

A notice that Jane Gates, interim president of Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, sent to the CSCU community said that the policy does not specifically require all employees to be fully vaccinated, it does give the CSCU president the authority to impose such a requirement if they see fit.
