How We Move Forward

Carefully Onward


Thanks to an unwavering commitment to what Hollins University coined a “Culture of Care” during the 2020-21 academic year, a vast majority of our students and employees were able to enjoy an in-person learning environment on the campus and in our classrooms, with only 21 positive cases of COVID-19 (13 in the fall; eight in the spring) reported through our weekly randomized testing protocol or self-reported.

Now Hollins is working diligently to prepare the campus for students’ return for the 2021-22 academic year. We expect to announce modified expectations for our Culture of Care in the coming months, but at the core will be a requirement that all members of the campus community must provide proof of vaccination by no later than July 30, 2021.
