Led by the SMU Community Action Network (SMU CAN), members of the Mustang community shared short videos about why they received the COVID-19 vaccination. Reasons included living with immunocompromised family members, keeping young children safe as they are too young for vaccination, protecting their community, and more.
According to the original charge of SMU CAN, Provost Loboa and VPSA Mmeje shared “SMU CAN was established to support a greater understanding and adoption of the personal responsibilities needed to keep our campus safe and healthy.” President Turner, Vice President of Student Affairs (VPSA) Mmeje, and Student Trustee Nia Kamau are among SMU community members who recorded and posted a video. Residence Life and Student Housing also had a number of Faculty-in-Residence and staff submit their reasons too. Check out and share a few videos for yourself.
All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to record and post their own video using the hashtag #MustangStrong.
