Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Following guidance from the college and local and state public health officials, Smith College School for Social Work is preparing to welcome students back to campus for the summer 2021 semester. The college’s “Culture of Care” COVID-19 Response Plan underscores the core value that must guide every member of the Smith community—caring for ourselves and for one another to promote a safe and healthy campus environment.
