The Manor College community is based on a commitment to a peaceful world, which inspires confidence in the present and hope for the future. Manor’s Basilian environment enables students to fully develop as individuals and instills an understanding of scientific, humanistic and ethical principles so students form a global vision. As such, the success of Manor College students, faculty, staff and community members is dependent on our willingness to support each other and work together.

The Manor College policies and guidelines for responding to the COVID-19 pandemic will be based on the safety for our students, faculty, staff, healthcare providers, and the public. The primary goals for Manor’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic are to protect public health and continue the institution’s vital mission of a personalized education for all.  All plans involving students, faculty, and staff will be based on the Fall 2020 Return to Campus Plan. Staff from Manor College will continue to work closely with local health officials at the regional and state level to ensure we are keeping our community safe. Protection against COVID-19 is a shared community responsibility for all members of the Manor College community.

Manor’s plans will be aligned and consistent with local orders and ordinances of the City of Jenkintown and Montgomery County, as well as the State of Pennsylvania’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania, and they will follow recommendations from the federal government (Opening Guidelines), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

In keeping with the commitment to be in compliance with the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Phased Strategies, Expectations, and Considerations for Safely Resuming In-Person Instruction in Pennsylvania, we are adhering to their checklist, answers to your questions can be found here.

As the COVID-19 pandemic develops, guidance from public health authorities and the CDC are likely to change. The College will continue to follow the most up to date information on maintaining workplace safety. We will work with students to address all concerns and any student with questions or who needs additional assistance is encouraged to contact us by emailing youbelonghere@manor.edu or calling (215) 885-2360 ext. 2276. Our employees deserve the safest work environment. Employees needing assistance should contact Human Resources Director, Tina Colella at ccolella@manor.edu.
