COVID-19: Updates and Information

VIU Launches Safety Ambassador Program

Safety Ambassador

VIU will have COVID-19 Safety Ambassadors at all three campuses this fall. Our new Ambassadors can answer questions about VIU's health and safety protocols and help people to follow the guidelines that are in place to keep our community safe. Part of their role will also be to help check in visitors coming to campus as well as employees and students making unscheduled visits. You’ll recognize them by their bright yellow safety vests and/or identifying name tag. On the Nanaimo Campus, the Ambassadors can be found in the quad near the Library, and we will also have three Ambassadors roving the campus. At the Cowichan and Powell River campuses, they will be at the reception areas.
