Compliance and Enforcement
Chapel Hall 102
The health and safety of our community is a shared priority and responsibility. We recognize that each and every one of us is doing our best, every day, to deal with an unprecedented global event with ever-evolving health and safety guidance.
This policy is not intended to penalize people who make innocent mistakes. Rather, it is to reinforce the seriousness of our responsibility to this community’s health and safety, and to address grievous or repeated violations.
This compliance policy was developed with these guiding principles in mind:
Gallaudet has several health and safety policies in place, which will evolve as the local and global situation changes. They are covered in depth in the Return to Campus COVID-19 Safety Training, available on Blackboard to all Gallaudet and Clerc employees and Gallaudet students.
All campus community members are asked to follow these safety protocols:
COVID-19 policy violations have been categorized as Category 1, 2, or 3. These lists are not all-inclusive. Resolutions may include, but are not limited to, the restorative practices and conduct processes listed below.
*The Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices (SARP) office may consider the nature of the violation, its context and circumstances, the student’s prior conduct history, the community impact of the behavior, and other factors.
Note: KDES/MSSD students and their families will receive communications directly from their school leadership.
The reporting and resolution process includes the following steps:
In the spirit of caring, we encourage community members to respond to face mask or social distancing violations by politely asking the person breaking the policy to comply, if it is reasonably comfortable to do so. If it is not, or another type of violation is taking place, you may report it.
Community members may report observed violations of COVID-19 protocols through two methods:
Reports should include the name(s) of individuals observed; the nature of the violation; the violation time, date, and location; and any corroborating details or information.
