Vaccinations and Testing

Due to City of Philadelphia mandates, anyone who comes to the College who is not fully vaccinated will be tested before they will be permitted on campus. Masks are required. Starting Oct. 15, all faculty, staff and students must be fully vaccinated. Please see our College COVID-19 Updates for more information.

In response to the ongoing public health issues surrounding COVID-19, and to do our part in preventing its spread, the Institute for Community Engagement and Civic Leadership will now be promoting virtual volunteer opportunities and socially distanced service opportunities.

Please read below to learn more about how you can give back during the pandemic!

Ways to Give Back & Volunteer During the Covid-19 Pandemic

With many of us having to temporarily slow down our lives, now is a great time to help meet the needs that currently exist in our city, some of which are simply words of encouragement and gratitude. Check out all of the different ways you can contribute to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic for our City. They include:

  • Sign Up to Serve as a Volunteer through the College's Pride Portal.
  • Volunteer for the Black Doctor's Consortium. 
  • Give back to one of the many non-profits to meet the current needs in our City.
  • Create "Thank You" cards and signs to send, post online; or hold them up for your local first responders and other essential staff when you see them (e.g. Septa operators, police officers, firefighters, grocery store workers.)
  • Check-in with your neighbor and put a care package together for those who need extra support during this time
  • Spread positivity on social media, call a friend or family member and remain socially distant.
