As a smaller college with a single location, thus far we have been able to effectively maintain a safe space.
Cogswell has taken multiple steps to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff including the following:
In the event there is a confirmed case or we are made aware of an exposure, we will immediately notify all constituents and outline next steps.
In the meantime, classes will continue as scheduled.

From the Provost & Chief Academic Officer
Dear Cogswell Community,
I hope the spring semester is progressing nicely. The safety of our community continues to be a primary focus of the College. With all the attention in the news media regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), I ask everyone to help prevent its spread (as well as any other infectious illnesses) by observing a few simple procedures.
All entrances to the building—including the main, front entrance—will remain locked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Current students, faculty, and staff must use their ID badge to gain access to the building at all times. You must wear your badge in a manner that is easily visible while on campus. Students, faculty, and staff who do not have a badge will need to check in at the front desk and be issued a temporary name tag. This name tag will be effective for 24 hours. All Cogswell guests will be required to register at the front desk. They will be issued a name badge to be worn while visiting the campus.These increased security measures will only work if we are all vigilant. Safety is everyone’s business. While on campus, please be observant of those around you. If you see someone in the building without a visible Cogswell ID or a visitor badge, please notify a member of the faculty or staff. Also, be cognizant of those around you while entering the building—do not open the doors or hold doors open for individuals without a visible ID.
Even with these safety measures in place, we recognize that emergency situations may arise. In the event that an emergency requires us to evacuate the building, please:
