A number of colleges and universities have begun announcing requirements that students who plan to attend on-campus instruction next fall be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Private institutions like Brown University and Cornell were among the first universities to announce the new expectation, but other public schools have been quick to follow.
The University of California as well as California State University – together with their 33 campuses standing as two of the largest university systems in the country – will both require vaccines.
New York colleges like Barnard, University of Rochester, Syracuse, Fordham, and Columbia will all do the same, as well nine different schools in the Massachusetts state university system.
🔦 The expansion of this requirement could potentially shake-up traditional college recruitment, as there is a growing, widespread resistance to the idea of compulsory vaccinations.
