Shawnee State University will open campus for fall 2020 semester with a combination of face-to-face instruction, online courses, and hybrid courses that combine in-person and remote learning.

The health and safety of our campus community is our priority. Aligned with the state’s Responsible RestartOhio Plan for Higher Education (PDF), Shawnee State developed a Safe Return to Campus Plan that outlines our phased approach to reopening, as well as new policies and practices that have been implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Report an Illness, Exposure or Positive Test

Students, faculty and staff who test positive for COVID-19 or who are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are required to self-report through Health Pass on the SSU App or the COVID-19 Incident form.

Steadfast in Our Commitment to Reducing the Spread of COVID-19

A Message from President Jeff Bauer:

I want to remind our campus community that while many things may feel somewhat “normal” at Shawnee State, these are definitely not normal times and the pandemic is far from over. We all have to remain diligent in our efforts to keep campus healthy by reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Our guidelines can mostly be reduced to Four Simple Actions we expect everyone on campus to do:
  1. Wear a mask. A face mask is required at all times inside campus buildings and outside when in the presence of others.
  2. Keep your distance. Stay at least six feet from others at all times. Don’t congregate in large groups.
  3. Wash your hands. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and keep your work and study areas clean.
  4. Stay home if sick. Monitor your health daily using Health Pass on the SSU App and stay home if you are sick.

It doesn’t have to be more complicated than that. It does, however, require constant and persistent attention — and that is something that we are each called to do. It’s critical to our ability to continue to safely be together on campus.

I ask that you do your part in keeping campus safe and healthy. Support and remind each other of the importance of these actions as we move through this semester.

Stay healthy and stay safe.
