  • Great Northern University has published a Safe-Back-to-School Plan that describes the precautions the University is taking as we continue in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 academic year.

    GNU is asking members of the university's community (students, staff, faculty, volunteers, etc) to voluntarily notify the university administration if they have a confirmed case of COVID, if they COVID-like symptoms, or if they have been exposed to COVID. Voluntary notification greatly improves the University's ability to maintain the health and safety of our campus. To notify, please send an email to

  • GNU is following and adopting the recommendations of multiple sources of guidance:
  • GNU community members who have COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have been exposed to COVID-19, should do the following:


  1. What to do if you have confirmed or suspected coronavirus disease

  2. What to do if you were potentially exposed to someone with confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

  3. What to do if you have symptoms of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and have not been around anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19


Please direct any questions or concerns to the University's administration.
