Framework for Reawakening K-State

The Executive Reawakening Team has developed a university reopening plan to keep K-State communities safe in the wake of COVID-19. The plan is a phased approach with universitywide criteria that aligns with national and local requirements and guidance. Each department and unit submitted specific operational area plans to account for individual differences across the university.
