The reopening plan approved by the FAMU Board of Trustees on June 4 would allow a phased return of administrators and staff and implement detailed safety, screening and reporting protocols to safeguard the campus in the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The 26-page reopening plan will be submitted to the Florida Board of Governors, which will consider it for approval at the June 23 meeting in Orlando.
“This plan presents a set of comprehensive measures taken for the benefit of faculty, staff and students as we ramp up on-campus operations,” Robinson said. “We will do all we can to continue to provide exceptional experiences for our students and address the well-being of our faculty and staff. Their return to campus will be a vote of confidence in us. We will not take that lightly.”
