As we come together in the fall, we return to working, living, and learning in community. Together, we take this step, trusting our positive behaviors will benefit ourselves and our community. 

Responsibility for creating a thriving environment requires each of us to take precautions to support the health and well-being of every person, including ourselves. To be collectively accountable to one another, we have created the Cobber Commitment – guidance and measures college community members will uphold to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

As a member of the Concordia community, I commit to doing what I can to care for myself, for other people and our community as a whole by listening, assisting and being part of the solution to lessen the spread of COVID-19.

I Commit To:

Care for Myself

Health Screening: I will participate in the college’s daily health screening including monitoring my temperature and overall health to evaluate if I should move about campus or stay home. 

Hand Washing: I will practice frequent and proper hand washing. 

Information: I will be responsible for reading the college’s COVID-19 correspondence and completing any required COVID-19 training. 


Care for Other People

COVID-19 Symptoms: I will stay home and connect with a health provider. Students: call the COVID Student Helpline 701.730.8304. Employees: contact your supervisor and your personal health provider. 

Physical Distancing: I will work to maintain 6 feet of physical distancing between myself and other people. 

Face Coverings: I will adhere to the college’s guidelines for face coverings/masks. 

Non-Discrimination: I will not discriminate against anyone who has the virus or who may be at increased risk nor will I engage in any bias related violence, intimidation and/or harassment. I will uphold college accessibility and non-discrimination policies and demonstrate care for other people. 


Care for Community

Isolation or Quarantine: I will follow the college’s protocols for isolation, quarantine, contact tracing, and testing to preserve community health. 

Travel: I will follow all non-essential business travel restrictions placed by the college or additional restrictions by Minnesota’s governor. 

Leaving campus/social gatherings: I will recognize my responsibility to our broader Moorhead/Fargo community and will maintain good health practices and behave in ways that demonstrate care for other people. 

Guests: I will ensure guests I bring to campus are aware of and comply with the College’s rules. Guests must not have symptoms of illness and follow all college self-care guidelines.
