Gannon University is a private Catholic university located in Erie, Pennsylvania. Gannon has a total enrollment of nearly 4,500 students.
As Gannon welcomed students back to campus and the fall semester began, the university focused on preventing and addressing community health concerns. During the first week of classes, several students experienced symptoms of illness and were unsure how to proceed. Another student was concerned because their roommate appeared sick but was not self- isolating.
The students submitted tips through the Vector LiveSafe Mobile App. Vector LiveSafe enabled them to share their questions and confusion and ask for information and guidance, as well as access CDC and campus-specific COVID-19 resources and protocols.
Students were able to connect with university resources and understand how to proceed. This helped Gannon officials understand student concerns and take appropriate action to ensure campus health and safety was maintained.
