The Flyers Promise

Consistent with our Lasallian Mission and the belief that our campus is a sacred space - a Sanctified Zone – faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to pledge responsibility for their own health and wellbeing and to help keep all members of the Lewis University community safe from the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. In the spirit of solidarity inspired by our Mission value of Association, we are called to act with great care, civility, and profound respect for each other.
