Return to Campus Information
A cross-functional campus team in close collaboration with KU leaders has developed detailed plans for returning to campus for the fall 2020 semester. Their planning includes a Protect.ku.edu website, which provides the latest information regarding COVID-19 and summarizes the decisions, readiness efforts, protocols, and procedures KU is implementing to reopen campus. The Protect.ku.edu website covers a range of topics such as health and safety, working on campus, and working remotely in a way that will help employees know what to expect in the coming weeks and months.
The policies, guidelines and responsibilities included in the document are based on the most current information and advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as state, county, and local health organizations. If individually and together we follow the measures set forth in the guide, our combined effort will enable us to provide our students the KU experience they expect while reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Please note: The Protect.ku.edu website is a living resource that will evolve in the days and weeks ahead based on your feedback, our continued planning efforts, and ever-changing circumstances across the state and nation. We are aware of recent COVID-19 trends locally and nationally, and we will continue to adapt accordingly. As the Chancellor and Provost have said many times, our goal is to welcome back as many students as we can while continuing to prioritize the health of our community above all else.
We will continue to provide updates via email to the campus community and at protect.ku.edu.
