Campus Plan: A Phased Return

Collage of college student and faculty

As we teach, learn, live and work together during the COVID-19 pandemic, our SF State campus remains committed to these guiding principles:

  • Our top priority remains the health and safety of our SF State community as we honor our core missions of social justice and
    academic excellence.
  • Our decision-making is grounded in facts, data and science from trusted public health sources.
  • Our communications are honest, frequent and respectful to inform and educate our Gator community.
  • Our response to changing health and safety conditions show compassion, flexibility, patience and courage.

Here are some positive indicators for a safe transition to in-person instruction in the 2021-2022 academic year:

  • SF State’s caution approach to the pandemic has kept our on-campus case count among the lowest of all colleges and universities nationwide. 
  • Our campus community members were among the first eligible for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved COVID-19 vaccines during Phase 1b of the vaccine rollout.
  • With millions of people fully vaccinated across California and the United States, the Biden Administration anticipates that our country will return to a sense of normalcy by July 2021.
  • Current optimism from the vaccine rollout and local guidance for reopening higher educational institutions support our SF State plan for a phased return to in-person instruction in Fall 2021. 

“Together, we are committed to a safe and healthy return to campus activities.”

This website is the hub for all University communications and guidance for a safe and healthy return to on-campus operations, with the shared goal to welcome our SF State students, staff and faculty in Fall 2021!
