Campus Advocates to promote University health and safety guidelines

Policy Indications

Princeton University's new Campus Advocate program will support a safe campus environment amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Campus Advocates will work inside buildings to educate faculty, staff and students about the University’s health and safety guidelines. The program has been launched on Oct. 19 with approximately 100 employees working as Campus Advocates. The staff have been redeployed from different University departments, including Campus Dining and Building Services.

Pop-up information tables are set up inside various buildings where Campus Advocates distribute information and supplies, as needed. With an educational approach, the advocates inform students, faculty and staff of the guidelines for using campus facilities, such as maintaining at least six feet between people and wearing masks. Locations include Frist Campus Center, Firestone Library, the University Chapel, Jadwin Gym and Caldwell Field House, as well as lobby areas in some residential colleges and the Graduate College. All members of the University community must complete online COVID-19 safety training in order to use campus facilities.
