Our Mission

The mission of the Student COVID Coalition is to support the University of Virginia and its surrounding communities in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and preparing for future public health crises, natural disasters, and economic recessions.

We formed the Student COVID Coalition to perform and centrally coordinate the extra activities needed to operate the University of Virginia during the COVID-19 pandemic. Operating UVA in the midst of a pandemic will require additional tasks, potentially including peer education, contact tracing, regular temperature checks, support for students in isolation, and other needs.

At this time, the SCC is soliciting formal commitments from students to provide a designated number of weekly volunteer hours specifically for pandemic-related tasks, if and when we return to Grounds over the upcoming year. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be provided.
