Executive Education's COVID-19 Safety Plans

Updated September 1, 2022

Based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as university, government, and health entities, we have carefully established protocols designed to promote a healthy environment for our faculty, staff, participants and visitors.

Participants in our classroom programs will be required to complete COVID-19 testing prior to arrival and upon check-in at the Kellogg location for the program. Test results must be submitted to Kellogg and a positive Covid test will require the participant to withdraw from the program and check-out of the Kellogg Allen Center facility. Masks are not required

We will continue to monitor all CDC guidelines and may adjust our requirements if conditions change. Please review this page and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) before your arrival on campus for more details and any additional updates. If you have questions, please contact Kellogg at execed@kellogg.northwestern.edu.


This page will be the one source for information regarding COVID-19 safety measures in place while attending programs on our Chicago and Evanston campuses.


Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND AN ON-CAMPUS EXECUTIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM?

A participant will need to provide negative COVID-19 test results conducted within 48 hours prior to arrival on campus and a second test on the first day of program activities or classroom instruction, whichever comes first, at our facility. Your Program Manager will provide specific information on the simple process to upload your test results.

The participant is responsible for the cost of the pre-arrival test. The upon-arrival test kit will be provided by Kellogg at no charge to the participant. Kellogg will not provide additional test kits to participants.  We urge incoming participant to bring rapid test kits if interested in more frequent testing.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A PARTICIPANT HAS A POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST RESULT??

Any positive test result will prohibit the participant from attending the program. If the participant has accommodations at the Kellogg Allen Center and has already started the program, they must check-out of the Allen Center and withdraw from the program. The participant may enroll in another iteration of the program or request a full refund.  Any additional expenses incurred due to a positive test are the sole responsibility of the individual. We are unable to provide remote virtual instruction to a participant that has withdrawn.

DO I NEED TO WEAR A MASK EVERYWHERE ON CAMPUS?

Masks are not required anywhere on Northwestern’s campus. If you are staying at a local hotel or dining outside of a Northwestern building, you will be required to adhere to the masking policies of the hotel or restaurant. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO SUBMIT MY TESTING DOCUMENTS?

The pre-arrival COVID-19 test result should be provided at least 12 hours prior to arrival. The upon-arrival test results must be uploaded prior to attending the first event or class.

WHAT ARE THE VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS FOR KELLOGG FACULTY AND STAFF?

Northwestern University requires vaccination for all faculty, staff and enrolled students on campus. Any exceptions to the policy require University approval. Any outside vendors on campus are required to comply with their company’s health and safety requirements.
