This comprehensive living document outlines Rose-Hulman’s plans and guidelines for a safe return to campus in Fall 2021.
Rose Ready is our comprehensive plan to help keep the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology campus and surrounding community safe by limiting the spread of COVID-19.
This includes the plans, tools and protocols needed for the successful resumption of campus activities this fall while helping every member of the Rose-Hulman community stay safe and healthy. Our overall guiding principles for this work are simple:
- Maximize student, faculty and staff health and safety
- Maximize student learning
These processes will continue to evolve, driven by the latest development of the virus on campus, in the local, regional, state and national communities, and the ever-expanding body of knowledge and science surrounding COVID-19.

Through our combined efforts and diligence, we will be Rose Ready.
