Return to Campus Information
For the Fall return to campus, the Antioch Board of Governors approved a vaccine mandate for Antioch University, and the Chancellor has asked all the campuses to implement that mandate. This means that any visitor to our campuses must be vaccinated. Students should check their e-mail for announcements about how to submit verification, and for information on exemptions for those who need them. In addition, all students, faculty, staff and visitors in a University facility will be required to properly wear a face mask over their mouth and nose at all times while in our buildings.
