Faculty and Staff: Submit by 5 p.m. Friday for a Chance to Win

To Our Faculty and Staff:

The more of you who are vaccinated, the safer we all will be.

Over the past month, a bit more than half of you have uploaded photographs of your vaccination cards—a solid proportion, but not sufficient for us to be able to lift campus COVID-19 protocols.

So we’re setting a deadline—specifically, 5 p.m. this Friday (June 4).

If you meet it, you’re eligible to win your choice of the following:

  • Three months of parking in the campus lot or garage of your choice*


  • $500**

Two winners—one faculty member and one staff member—will be selected randomly from among those who have verified their vaccination status by the deadline.

Why are we offering this incentive? Because we need to know how many of you (and our students) have been vaccinated to plan responsibly for the fall. And, to be honest, we prefer to achieve that goal without instituting a requirement—after all, we’ve had so many of those in the past year.

If you haven’t already, please submit your vaccination card pictures this week. For step-by-step instructions, visit our COVID-19 website.

Winners will be announced Monday (June 7).

Vice President for Human Resources

*The selected location must have a space available. In addition, the winners still have to pay the monthly rate of their current spot (or, if they do not now park on campus, the rate for the selected spot). 

**The cash awarded is taxable.
