Protecting the Campbell Community

Moving Forward

For the past year and a half, the Campbell University community has worked together to face the challenges posed by a global pandemic. We successfully managed to limit the impact of COVID-19 on our campus thanks to safety guidelines, increased testing protocols and a lot of effort and sacrifice on the part of our faculty, staff and students.

And now, it’s time for us to move forward. Through the guidance of our Health and Safety Task Force, we are carefully adapting our COVID-19 response plan to help resume some normalcy for Summer and Fall 2021. 

Success will depend on your continued cooperation.  With a renewed sense of care and concern, we urge your continued cooperation and commitment to protect our community.

This site will offer the most up-to-date information for Campbell’s response to COVID-19. Information may be subject to change.
