Reporting and Enforcement

Students and employees are essential when it comes to combating the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and within our community.

Reporting

All students, faculty and staff must help in holding each other accountable.

Unsafe and/or non-compliant behavior should be reported using this form or by calling (309) 677-2000. Prepare to share detailed information including addresses/locations, names and details.

If you are a symptomatic (vaccinated or unvaccinated) student, please immediately make an appointment to be evaluated by Health Services by calling 309-677-2700.

Testing locations throughout Peoria can be found here.

Enforcement

Bradley University students and employees who are present on campus must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved campus exemption. Individuals with medical or religious exemptions must present a negative COVID-19 test result each week. Students, faculty and staff are responsible for obtaining their own COVID-19 test. No surveillance testing will be done on campus.

Students and employees not complying with this policy may be subject to disciplinary action which may include dismissal from campus.

For the purpose of this guidance, noncompliance is further defined as any behavior that fails to comply with the university’s COVID-19 related health requirements for the workplace (i.e., masking, testing), which, if continued, could undermine the university’s ability to safeguard the health and safety of the university community.

For employees who are not in compliance

Human Resources will administer and enforce the noncompliance directives. Department managers and supervisors will be asked to work with appropriate HR personnel to address noncompliance.

For continued occurrences of noncompliance, the schedule of disciplinary action below will be followed:

  1. First occurrence: Employee receives a verbal notice from Human Resources.
  2. Second occurrence: Employee receives a written notice from Human Resources.
  3. Third occurrence: Employee receives a final written warning from Human Resources.
  4. Fourth occurrence: Employee is terminated.

The university reserves the right to bypass steps in this progressive disciplinary schedule in the event of severe noncompliance, including, but not limited to failure to complete consecutive required tests. Disciplinary steps will not be repeated; for example, once a verbal notice is made, a written notice will occur if the employee is again out of compliance. Any disciplinary action taken may be reviewed through the relevant grievance/appeal or review procedure for faculty and staff.
