CSU enters Stage 4 on Monday, Aug. 17.

Dear Faculty and Staff:

With the beginning of the fall semester upon us, we will bypass Stage 3 of our Return-to-Campus Schedule and begin Stage 4 on Monday, Aug. 17. Stage 4 has always been defined as the Fall 2020 semester delivery of course content through our four modalities. That said, the following elements of previous stages continue to remain in effect until otherwise noted:

  • Students will attend classes based on their instructional formats (in-person, virtual, hybrid or extended-classroom)
  • Faculty and staff will continue their work plans as assigned and directed by their immediate supervisors (which may include telework).
  • All official university meetings should continue to be held virtually when possible, or under physical-distancing guidelines when not possible.
  • All campus visitors should continue to call to schedule appointments, and wear face coverings if those meetings are conducted on campus.

As these measures indicate, campus will continue to look and feel different; but our commitment to our students’ and campus’ safety has not changed. Many of these measures will help achieve our goals of lowering campus density and observing physical distancing while we also strive to provide quality and essential services to our students and to one another.

Please continue to consult your CSU email and our Return to Campus website for new developments. In addition, if you have questions or concerns, you may submit those through our Questions and Ideas Form.
