SVSU posted a prerecorded webinar on its Facebook page on July 28 to update the community on changes to the campus.
As one of five required practices (which can be found at svsu.edu/nestplan/), students, faculty and staff will have to wear face coverings on campus.
Each person will be given a SVSU-branded mask.
Signs and floor stickers will be placed around campus to remind students to practice social distancing and other precautions.
Plexiglass barriers will be placed in areas where staying six feet apart is not possible.
Hand-sanitizer stations will be in all classrooms and common areas.
Classes will be offered in-person, hybrid and online.
Some classes will happen synchronously, meaning half of the students might attend in-person while the other half watch a livestream.
Other classes will happen asynchronously, meaning materials will be posted online for students to complete at their convenience.
Class formatting will be decided on a course-by-course basis.
Labs are anticipated to operate at 50 percent capacity. Half the students might attend in-person, while the other half livestream or complete remote assignments.
Lab formatting will also be decided on a course-by-course basis.
Zahnow Library is open to students. Tutoring will be available, largely in a virtual format. These services will still be available after Thanksgiving, when all fall classes move online.
Residence halls will be discussed in another Facebook livestream on Aug. 4.
