Reopening the Angelicum


Oct 5, 2020

A team of our staff has been working with a Security company to determine the best plan for reopening the University this fall, commencing on October 5th. Excellent work has been done to put into place protocols to ensure the safety of faculty, staff and students who will be returning to the University. I am happy to be able to share with you our plan, which is still evolving since regulations set forth by the government change regularly. You will be informed of any changes as they occur in order to be in compliance with updated regulations.


As we embark upon a new chapter of our University's history, we look at our response through the lens of our holy Catholic faith. We are all called to act with integrity, responsibility, compassion and generosity. Every day we will have to put aside some of our own self-interests for the good of others in our community. This at times will pose a challenge but is necessary for a successful year. With God’s grace and our commitment to the common good of all of our Angelicum family, I know that we will be able to do this.


All of our decisions are based upon guidance provided by legislative decrees issued by the Italian government along with the assistance of the security company, SICURLAV 2015 SRLS. As the situation develops, we will continue to rely on the expertise of SICURLAV in the updating of our protocols to ensure the health and safety of all of our Angelicum family.


As faculty members, staff members, and administrators, we are committed to ensuring a healthy environment to all at the University and thank you in advance for adhering to the protocols that will be required.


This document is designed to address the situation we face as well as our mission. Though these protocols are being implemented, they are still evolving to reflect the most current decrees put forth by the government. Please visit the site and make sure you understand what is required of you while you are at the Angelicum.


Please join me in praying for our Institution, that each and every one of us remains safe and healthy.
