The Sunrise Plan

Our faculty, staff and students are our most important assets; therefore, Hood College is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all members of our community. Our priority is to enable all members of our community to work in the safest place possible. The guiding principles of our policies and protocols will be rooted in the safety for our community and aligned with the county and state’s reopening plans.

Most College employees will continue to work from home, even as restrictions in the county and state are loosened.

The Sunrise Plan was adopted by the COVID Emergency Response Team (CERT) on May 27, 2020.
