Staff & Managers

SF State is prioritizing the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students. Nearly all offices and services remain open but are being offered remotely during the spring semester. Human Resources offers detailed information about remote work, safety protocols and other frequently asked questions. The draft of the Campus Repopulation Plan and other important information may be found on Human Resources' what's new page.

Fall 2021 will be a transitional semester with significantly more in-person classes as well as remote options for students. To support a greater number of in-person classes and operations, we expect that most staff who have been working remotely will return to work in a hybrid model, with a balance of in-person and remote work to be determined by an appropriate administrator. As always, the university remains committed to providing a safe work environment, following the highest levels of San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) guidelines.

To reduce the number of people on campus at one time and allow for physical distancing, we are planning for flexibility and prioritizing safety and the need to serve our students at the level they need and deserve. Vice presidents are working with appropriate administrators to plan for in-person staffing levels and how to accomplish them safely in our various workspaces.

Throughout the pandemic, SF State has prioritized the safety of our campus community, and the campus will continue to be a safe place as we transition to greater in-person learning, work and other experiences, while diligently following SFDPH guidance.

SF State will continue observing the public health mitigations that have kept those working and living on campus for the past year safe, including:

  • Physical distancing 
  • Observing maximum occupancy guidelines
  • Multi-layered face coverings
  • Enhanced cleaning
  • Availability of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Broad availability of hand sanitizer and other supplies
  • Health screenings for individuals who are interacting with others
  • Voluntary testing as necessary

Colleges and departments are working now to confirm plans for faculty. For staff and administrators, preliminary fall plans will be submitted by June 1, and employees will be notified of the framework for in-person staffing by appropriate administrators to allow time for planning.  Staffing needs will be reassessed on an ongoing basis as the health situation develops, increasing numbers of students arrive on campus and as SFDPH rules allow. 

The SF State community is encouraged to get the COVID-19 vaccine
