Gonzaga University community members – which includes students, faculty, staff, administrators and their visitors or guests – must be active participants in reviewing and following COVID-19 expectations.
As a Jesuit, Catholic and humanistic university, all community members have shared responsibility to set boundaries, communicate expectations, and engage in thoughtful dialogue and correction that demonstrates a care for self, others, and the community.
If Someone is Not Following Guidelines
When approaching community members not following guidelines, be mindful of the Ignatian concept of presupposition. This includes presuming best intentions and kindly engaging in explaining the impact of the behavior and requests to follow guidelines. The University anticipates most situations will be resolved through our shared responsibility to follow and respond to concerns in this manner.
When these approaches do not result in compliance or behavior demonstrates willful disregard or is significantly affecting the greater community, the University has informal and formal processes to address those complaints. Additionally, the University has response protocols regarding University non-compliance with local/state/federal COVID-19 regulations.
How the University Will Review and Respond to Complaints
Reports will be routed to appropriate Gonzaga University departments and personnel for review, consideration and appropriate follow-up:
- Gonzaga University Non-Compliance with Local/State/Federal Regulations: COVID-19 Compliance Staff
- Employee Non-Compliance and/or their Guests: Human Resources
- Student Non-Compliance and/or their Guests: Resolution Center for Student Conduct and Conflict
- Vender and Visitor Non-Compliance: Campus Security and Public Safety and GUEST Services
The University has limited ability to respond to anonymous reports or those that contain minimal or non-specific information.
Due to privacy regulations (HIPAA, FERPA, etc.), the University is generally unable to share follow-up and resolution outcomes with reporting parties.
