Return to Rutgers Plan for OIT

About the plan

This guidebook for OIT’s return to Rutgers follows the university’s plans for repopulating Rutgers in 2020-21. The universitywide guidance is a foundation of this plan and a key reference for moving forward with the return of employees, students, and patients to Rutgers spaces.

As noted in the May 27, 2021, letter from President Jonathan Holloway, our return will be guided by “three overarching principles: 1) we are returning to the classroom and the workplace in support of our mission of teaching, research, clinical care, and service; 2) our commitment to the health and safety of the campus community, based on science and public health guidelines, remains paramount; and 3) the safe repopulation of our campuses is a shared responsibility, which means we all must do our part to keep safe, to ensure equity in our return, and to be flexible in implementing the return.”
