Return to Campus Information for Faculty & Staff

As Georgia Southern employees start returning to their offices and prepare to welcome students back in the fall, our goals are to protect the health of employees, and help ensure the well-being of the community while carefully and deliberately preparing for the fall semester. Everyone at the University has an individual responsibility to contribute to proper behavior and to adhere to public health guidance to protect themselves and others as well as to help contain the spread of the virus. Institutional controls are only as effective as the willingness of individuals to carry them out.

For a summary of how we expect our operations to change, please review the FAQ and the Return to Campus Plans below. Remember that a safe and healthy campus is a responsibility we all share at Georgia Southern. That means we all take action to make sure our community thrives. And when we all do right, we value ourselves, our neighbors, our well-being and our environment. It may not always be easy, and it may not always be comfortable, but it’s always best for everyone.

When you’re a true blue Eagle, you do what Erk said — Do Right.

  • Eagles Do Right when we follow public health guidelines. 
  • Eagles Do Right when we wash our hands.
  • Eagles Do Right when we spread our wings. 
  • Eagles Do Right when we encourage each other.
  • Eagles Do Right when we respect our nest. 
  • Eagles Do Right when we cover our beaks.

Signage for Return to Campus 

The “Return to Campus” signage page provides downloadable resources that will help communicate public health guidelines to ensure the safety and welfare of your area.

HR Guide to Return to the Workplace

The health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and communities will continue to be our utmost priority. We continue to keep the health of our university community paramount to all of our plans. As many of us return to our offices, Georgia Southern’s Department of Human Resources has prepared the “Guide for Returning to the Workplace” to help everyone manage this return. The guide includes information on preventative practices in the workplace, the phased return to campus and staffing, a manager’s toolkit, and more.
