Maintaining a Healthy Campus

  • Mask Policy
    • Masks are optional on the SMU campus in indoor spaces with a few notable exceptions.
    • Faculty have the discretion to require students to wear masks in their instructional spaces (classroom, labs, etc.) and during research activities.
    • Although masks are not required in faculty or staff office spaces, individuals can wear one and request that others do so when visiting.
    • Masks are still required inside the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center and on public transportation including campus shuttles.
