Spartan Strong: MBU on Campus

Spartan Strong: MBU on Campus

MBU re-opened our campus in the fall of 2020 while offering the unique “MBU experience” so many of you desire to the fullest extent possible. While MBU is encouraging students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated, the University does not plan to require members of our community to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. 

Spring 2022 Update

In light of the increased number of COVID-19 cases in the region, Missouri Baptist University will implement the following protocols beginning with the spring semester.  

  • Beginning Jan. 10, 2022, MBU students, employees, and visitors will be required to wear face coverings in indoor spaces except for private living and work areas. This policy will be reevaluated Jan. 31 based on local Covid 19 conditions.
  • Weekly chapel will be held virtually through January 27, 2022 with an anticipated return to in-person chapel on February 3, 2022. Students may participate in chapel via MBU’s YouTube Channel or through the iAttended App.  
  • MBU community members should continue to use the Spartan Safe App for daily health assessment as well as for contract tracing in the case of signs or symptoms, a positive COVID test result, or suspected or confirmed COVID-19 exposure. 
  • Anyone who visits campus must complete a daily COVID-19 assessment using the Spartan Safe App.   
  • MBU Athletics will continue to adhere to all NAIA and AMC guidelines and student athletes must complete the COVID-19 assessment prior to team practice or competition. 

MBU’s COVID-19 Action Team will continue to daily review data and trends related to the coronavirus and make modifications that keep the well-being of our MBU community paramount.

Below are overarching changes and decisions that, to date, have resulted from our planning:
