YSU intends full re-opening for Fall Semester

YOUNGSTOWN – Youngstown State University announced today plans for the incremental safe return of employees to campus through the summer in anticipation of students starting the Fall Semester in August.

“After meeting the challenges of a Spring Semester interrupted by the coronavirus, we are now ready to move into a new phase of our pandemic response,” President Jim Tressel said. “While this phase still includes many uncertainties, it also presents numerous opportunities. One of those opportunities is returning our employees to campus.”

Tressel also said the university is developing plans with the intention to fully open campus for Fall semester as scheduled on Aug. 17. Those plans are dependent on the future course of the pandemic.

Most YSU employees have been working off campus since mid-March, when the university moved all classes to remote instruction due to the coronavirus outbreak. Remote instruction continues during Summer semester.
