Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Like so many across the nation and beyond, we at the University of Providence have been monitoring the spread of the coronavirus.

Our goal is to provide clear, concise and timely information to students, faculty, staff, families on what UP is doing to protect our community.

The information provided on this website is not intended to be all-encompassing and should not be considered medical or legal advice. We encourage proper hygiene and health precautions, but we urge you to consult with a relevant expert for guidance specific to your circumstances.

UP COVID-19 Readiness and Resources

INTRODUCTION & COMMITMENT

The University of Providence is committed to providing a safe environment in which the entire UP community can learn, work, and live. This commitment touches virtually every facet of the university’s life, from the individual classroom, to recognizing the institution’s obligations to do what we can to help assure the safety of the wider Great Falls community in which we live and work.

Under the leadership of our President, the Very Reverend Father Oliver J. Doyle, and guided by both the Board of Trustees and the President’s COVID-19 Taskforce, the University of Providence has drafted an Emergency Operations Plan to guide decision-making across the institution.  Planning for the safe reopening of campus operations is informed by the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our local Cascade City-County Health Department (CCHD), and the directives of the Montana Governor’s Office.

The quick link sections to the left, outline the over 80 pages of our campus Emergency Opening Plan (EOP) into a more navigable structure for exploring and reference. To see the full EOP report, click here.
