We ask that you model Kent State’s core values of kindness and respect on campus, which includes being mindful of others’ feelings and respecting each other's concerns. Please remember to carry a face covering with you as we expect that as a courtesy, anyone, if asked, should be willing to wear a face covering indoors to alleviate the concerns of those less comfortable around others who are not wearing face coverings. This is how Flashes Take Care of Flashes. Let’s be considerate of those who are less comfortable around others who are not wearing face coverings.
As our University President, Dr. Todd Diacon, noted in his email to faculty and staff on May 27, 2021 , “we are an in-person community built over the course of more than 100 years. Interacting in person – with colleagues, students and community members – is what we do. It is who we are.”
Below are some additional considerations, protocols, and requirements for you to review as we welcome you back to campus. These protocols and requirements are consistent with State of Ohio Orders for responsible reopening and guidelines from the CDC. These protocols and requirements are subject to change based on Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s orders, the CDC and the university’s business needs. These procedures are provided for the health and safety for the university community, should be viewed as temporary in nature and are subject to change based on appropriate medical advice and the needs of the university.
