Guiding Principles

Pwani University is committed to provide quality education, training, research, outreach and opportunities for innovation for the advancement of individual and society, developing a safe and fulfilling environment for our students, staff, faculty and visitors, and serving Kilifi community.
As we gradually come back together, we must recognize the responsibility that each member of the Pwani University community has to all other members; responsible behavior is not only necessary for getting back to the business of education and research, but in the current context is a deeply ethical issue.

Social Distancing
Social distancing is paramount in reducing the spread of COVID-19. We expect all members of the PU community to look out for each other by engaging in social distancing practices and by encouraging everyone else to do the same. Students, faculty and staff will be presented with information about expectations for behavior for the semester as well as enforcement mechanisms.

High-Risk Groups
We expect students, staff and faculty to take care of themselves as well. That means individuals in high-risk groups — and those caring for individuals in high-risk groups — should engage in social distancing to avoid chances of infection. Supervisors and administrators will work to accommodate those who should be staying away from campus.

Stay Home if You’re Sick
Students, staff and faculty should not put others at risk by coming to campus if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19. Everyone should complete daily symptom checks before coming to campus and should stay home if they exhibit symptoms or have had recent contact with someone who has tested positive

Accommodation of Schedules
Many students, staff and faculty have family care responsibilities. Those responsibilities will be affected by decisions made by the main campus. Pwani University will seek to accommodate the schedules of people with significant family care responsibilities in a reasonable way.
