July 30, 2020

As we prepare to welcome students back to campus for the fall semester, the health and safety of the Salve Regina community is our first priority. 

Our Campus Readiness Planning Group has been working tirelessly to ensure that reconfigured classrooms, lecture halls, offices, common areas and residence halls are in accordance with guidelines set by the Rhode Island Department of Health. The University has also been focused on the financial implications the pandemic has had on our students and families. The economic uncertainty has caused hardship for many, and Salve Regina is committed to assisting students so that they may return to campus to complete their education.

The Mercy Emergency Relief Fund, established for use during unanticipated situations, has become a critical source of funding to bridge the financial gap that many of our undergraduate students face. It can be considered a ‘helping hand’ to assist with technology, tuition, wellness and other critical needs that may arise. Since the pandemic’s onset, Salve Regina alumni, family, friends, faculty and staff have raised more than $301,000 from over 1000 donors to support students in need.

With the University’s reopening, the Mercy Emergency Relief Fund remains a vital resource in ensuring the delivery of Salve’s signature academic experience. As students return to campus—their home away from home—it is our hope that the Salve Regina family, in the spirit of the Mercy tradition, will continue its generous support for the Mercy Emergency Relief Fund.
