June 1: UF HAS CREATED A DRAFT PLAN FOR REOPENING THAT FOLLOWS THE SUS BLUEPRINT. WE WELCOME INPUT.
The Florida Board of Governors, the State University System’s governing board, has approved a broad SUS blueprint for reopening the state’s public universities this fall. The blueprint stresses as a foundational priority the health and welfare of students, faculty, staff and others while giving individual universities flexibility in their reopening rules, procedures and guidelines. Under the blueprint, universities are developing their own reopening plans.
The University of Florida’s draft plan outlines how UF will strive to create a safer, healthier campus environment and continue its research and education missions using screening and testing, enhanced protective measures, comprehensive communications and other tools.
We welcome input on the UF plan. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The UF Board of Trustees unanimously approved the plan during its June 5 meeting. The plan will be submitted to the Board of Governors by the June 12 deadline. It is expected the plan will continue to evolve as circumstances with COVID-19 evolve globally and locally.
