Harvard Divinity School continues to closely monitor the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and the progress of the vaccination effort. As always, the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are of paramount importance. As such, the HDS campus is currently closed and classes are being held online. Anyone who needs access to campus buildings or who will be working on campus must follow the current re-entry procedures (PDF).
Verifying Your Vaccination: Harvard is requiring COVID vaccination for all community members who will have any on-campus presences this fall, including students, faculty, staff, and researchers. For faculty, staff, and researchers, we advise vaccination as soon as possible, and verification of vaccination must be submitted to Harvard University Health Services by July 15. Once you are vaccinated, you must submit verification of your completed vaccination card received from your vaccination provider.
Fall 2021 Plans: As of spring 2021, the School plans to have faculty, staff, and students return to campus for the fall term, to the extent allowed by the evolving public health situation. Our aim is to begin the fall term with as much in-person learning as possible.
