The Chargers Care Pledge to Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19

As Chargers, there are values and expectations that we all share which provide the framework for how we interact as individual members of the community and speak to who we are and what we stand for as a community.

And today, as the effects of this pandemic impact the Charger community and the world, we must all do our part to care for the health and wellbeing of every member of our campus community.


We pledge to CARE FOR OURSELVES.

We pledge to CARE FOR OTHERS.

We pledge to CARE FOR OUR CHARGER COMMUNITY.
