Face covering/mask policy

Due to our local community’s recent uptick in infections, all students, faculty, staff and visitors—regardless of vaccination status—are required to wear a mask in campus buildings and other WMU facilities. Once we are notified by the WMU COVID-19 Response Team, the mask requirement will return to the previous policy of requiring masks for students, faculty and staff who have not verified their vaccination status in the Sindecuse Health Center patient portal. 

We highly recommend that you upload your vaccination information to your Sindecuse Health Center portal if you were vaccinated somewhere other than Sindecuse Health Center. Need help uploading your vaccine verification? Check out this YouTube video for help! For more information, visit WMU's COVID Policy page.

WMU Badging Policy

WMU COVID-19 Badging Policy Enforcement

The SRC utilizes the WMU COVID-19 badging system for granting access to the SRC. All WMU faculty, staff, and students must present their badge for that day at the turnstiles with their Bronco Card. Your badge must display your name and today's date.

  • Red, Purple or Orange COVID-19 Badge

    If your COVID-19 badge is any color other than green, you may not access the SRC that day. The SRC cannot change badge status. Badges are changed by the University for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, missed testing the previous week, quarantine, or isolation.

    What does my badge color mean?

How to determine if you have SRC access

Beginning with the Fall 2021 semester, access to the SRC is included in tuition for all currently enrolled undergraduate students. SRC access for graduate students is determined by enrollment fees paid for the semester/session. If you were not charged the enrollment fee (graduate students), then you can activate your SRC membership for $90 for the semester. That process can be completed by coming to our main office Monday through Friday from  9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For questions please call (269) 387-3115.

    Stretching: Virtual lunch and learn

    Experts have suggested that Americans sit for approximately 10 hours each day. Sitting for prolonged periods of time increases your risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and may lead to stiff joint pain and injury. Stretching a few times a day will help improve flexibility, get your blood flow moving, and improve your range of motion.

  • Two people discussing, co-workers discussing work

    How many times have we avoided saying what is on our minds and in our hearts because we were concerned about how that information would be received? In this workshop, we’ll uncover the elements of Crucial Conversations with the purpose of being equipped the next time we encounter an opportunity to share our truth and be congruent with ourselves.

  • Vegetables, a tape measure, stethoscope and diabetes calculator

    This workshop will focus on how healthy eating and exercising not only helps you manage your diabetes but can also help you feel empowered about the choices you’re making and help you to live your best life.
