In order to keep our campus safe and cultivate a strong and inclusive learning environment, all students, faculty, and staff will have to contribute. Embracing awareness and considering how our decisions and actions affect our community will be pivotal in the success of our “new normal.”
All faculty, staff, students, and guests to the University are required to wear a face covering while inside University buildings, including classrooms.
All faculty, staff and students of UW Oshkosh are required to participate in training related to reducing the spread of COVID-19.

With the unveiling of the Recovery Task Force’s framework to reopen our campus for fall 2020, we know many of you are anxious to plan your classes for September, find out what campus will look like, and learn more about our plans to safeguard your health. While we are moving forward, we must first give the implementation teams time to do their work.
The urgency to safely return to our campuses and carry out our mission to transform lives is evident now more than ever. Knowing this, I share good news with you today: UW Oshkosh is moving forward with reopening our campuses for fall semester.
As we close out the spring semester, we understand the question on many minds is: What is going to happen in the fall? We want you to be prepared to answer that question, even as we work through a plan to reopen our campuses.
