As our state, nation, and the world continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken steps to ensure that our return to campus this fall is done with the necessary adjustments, protocols, and guidelines to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all.
No matter what adjustments we are required to make in the delivery of services, we will continue to provide our students and community the full range of services they have grown to rely upon from Shawnee State University.
Various task groups and committees worked on different aspects of our phased return over the summer leading to the start of the fall 2020 semester. Their work informed our Bears Return Plan (PDF) and our Health and Safety Guidelines for Employees (PDF).
Our plans incorporate orders and guidance from the Ohio Department of Health and are based upon a set of Guiding Principles that include a focus on the health and safety of all in our campus community.
