Brighter Together Masks Available for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Lawrentians are dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our community,  and, as we come together again this academic year, it is more important than ever that we continue to Honor the Pledge to mitigate the spread of the virus.  In gratitude for your continued efforts to keep friends, classmates, students, and colleagues safe, all members of the Lawrence community will receive a Brighter Together mask.

Masks will be distributed by the end of the week to students in their campus mailbox.  If you do not receive a mask, students can reach out to Wellness Services at wellnessservices@lawrence.edu.

Faculty and staff can pick up masks (one per ID) at the Wellness Center desk starting today.  

When we Honor the Pledge by wearing our masks and checking our health daily, we keep our community safe. When we Honor the Pledge, we are brighter together.
