As one Drew University community, our top priority is to stand together, act together, and commit together to uphold the health and safety of our community. It is our personal and collective responsibility to take all necessary steps to stay well and protect each other. Therefore, by signing this pledge, I agree to follow the guidelines provided by the University to help keep the Drew community and the community at large safe and to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other infections as identified and instructed by the University, and as guided by the CDC and the State of New Jersey.
