Protect Purdue efforts proving effective a month into semester

Campus vaccination rate climbs to 85%, COVID-19 positivity rates remain low

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A month into the 2021-22 school year, Purdue University’s Protect Purdue efforts continue to be successful in helping keep the campus vibrant, healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Purdue has been as open, densely populated and operational as any campus even close to its size among U.S. universities since the pandemic. And this fall, Purdue welcomed its largest freshman class ever in driving enrollment to record levels, offering a fully in-person instructional experience and embracing a return to normal activities and events – all made possible through a collective commitment to masking and other safety protocols in compliance with the Protect Purdue Pledge.

More information can be read on the Protect Purdue website.
