The MBA students traveled to Turks and Caicos, according to Columbia University spokesman Christopher Cashman.
“The Turks & Caicos trip was a group event that violated this policy and thus was met with disciplinary action,” Cashman said.
Cashman said the students can’t enter campus until December 1. They must complete their academic obligations by attending class virtually.
If the students violate the policy again, they are subject to harsher discipline, Cashman said.
“All of this is being done to protect the broader health of our community and, thankfully, to date our positive case rate remains low,” Cashman said.
