Protect the Pack Pledge

Huskies take care of Huskies. We're resilient, respectful and moving forward, together. By following guidelines to promote the health and well-being of the NIU community, we can help protect each other from the spread of COVID-19.


I recognize that I play an important part in ensuring the health of our university community. I pledge to Protect the Pack by taking care of myself and the community that cares for me.

I will keep myself and fellow Huskies healthy by:

Caring for myself.

  • Wash my hands/use hand sanitizer often.
  • Keep my space and belongings clean.
  • Submit daily wellness checks through the #CampusClear app.
  • Avoid risky behaviors.

Caring for others.

  • Stay home if I feel ill.
  • Wear a face mask that covers my mouth and nose and follow guidance on physical distancing, both on- and off-campus.
  • Follow instructions from NIU about testing and quarantining.

Caring for my community.

  • Help keep shared areas clean.
  • Follow instructional signage.
  • Notify the university if I test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms.
  • Choose to be positive and uphold NIU’s values.
