Case Western Reserve University’s approach to bringing staff back to campus centers around a single goal:
To maintain the health and safety of the campus community while advancing the university’s academic mission.
To that end, the university’s process reflects government directives, expert guidance, and established best practices for reducing risk of infection.
It also involves a deliberately gradual ramp-up. The first group included fewer than 100 employees drawn from four areas.
The specifics of the return-to-campus process will evolve over time, first in response to external changes (new state orders, public health recommendations and/or lessons from elsewhere), and also through increasing experience as more units return.
