Departmental Requirements

for Returning to Campus. Not related to requests for face-to-face courses.

Departments should read the Warrior Return to Campus Plan 2020 before completing the Return to Campus Request. Campus repopulations will be tightly controlled and coordinated to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff, as well as the communities we serve. No unit or department shall return faculty, staff or student employees to campus without appropriate authorization.

Requests to return to campus will be evaluated through a process of risk and resource assessment to establish approval, prioritization, and sequence. Safety & Risk Management (S&RM) will be reviewing each department’s applicable risk assessment and prevention protocols before employees or students are permitted to return to campus.

Required anytime distribution of materials is needed

To ensure the safety of our students, faculty, and staff, an online Distribution of Materials Risk Assessment has been identified to help guide the distribution of materials process. This assessment starts with the individual, department, or group determining ahead of time if the materials being distributed are essential to the academic mission and strategic plan of the University. If this determination exists, approval from the College Dean or Vice President is needed. Once the proper approval has been obtained, the online risk assessment should be completed to determine if the materials being distributed are safe for the end-user to receive and use them. This online risk assessment should be completed after receiving approval from the appropriate Dean or Vice President. Please allow 3-5 days after submittal for final review and approval.
