Westfield State University requires all Westfield State University employees to have received an initial series of COVID vaccination (2 doses of Pfizer/Moderna or 1 dose of J&J) prior to coming to campus or to have been approved for exemption as a condition of employment. Initial booster doses are strongly encouraged for everyone who is eligible. Upon offer, details about how to demonstrate receipt of vaccination or request an exemption due to a sincerely held religious belief or if the vaccine is medically contraindicated will be provided.
At Westfield, we strive to create a culture that employees are proud to be a part of. Our community fosters intellectual curiosity, encourages critical thinking, inspires civic engagement, and promotes a global perspective. As the first public co-educational college in America without barrier to race, gender, or economic class, we pride ourselves on having a diverse community that celebrates individuality and empowers others through leadership opportunities.
