COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge

Vaccine Champion UniversityCarnegie Mellon is among hundreds of colleges and universities to accept the invitation from the White House and U.S. Department of Education to end the pandemic by joining the COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge. Participating colleges commit to taking three key actions to help get their campus communities vaccinated. 

  • Engage every student, faculty, and staff member. Make sure every member of the  campus community knows they are eligible for a vaccine and has resources to find one.
  • Organize your college community. Lead the way by identifying champions for vaccine efforts across campus and implementing a plan to get as many members of your college community vaccinated as possible.
  • Deliver vaccine access for all. Meet your community where it is: bring vaccines on-site, and make it easy for students, staff, and faculty to get vaccinated at sites nearby this summer.
