Step 3This document provides the protocols for Step Three of the Recovery Planning process and may be altered in future steps of the phased return to campus: Return to Campus Recovery Plan

(Return to Campus Recovery Plan Step Three Accessible PDF)

Step Three is our current phase of the five-step Recovery Plan, and it entails returning the campus facilities to a condition that allows for limited employees to be on campus for reduced summer operations, with a focus on physical distancing practices, de-densification, and the complete cleaning and disinfection of campus buildings to
facilitate a safe return to campus for faculty and staff.

Our knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, and our policies and plans will be updated as more information becomes available.

Return to campus process and questionnaire

QuestionnaireEach department will work directly with their dean, vice president or vice provost and the Recovery Planning Team to determine the appropriate timing for a return to campus, based on the type of work being performed. We are currently in Step Three of our Recovery Plan with limited faculty and staff on campus.

The return to campus approval process is:

  • All units requesting a return to campus of any size should first read these Step 3 Return to Campus Guidelines in their entirety. This guide provides the framework for a phased return to campus and highlights health and safety; facilities preparation, cleaning and disinfection; academic planning;
    and human resource protocols.
  • All requests for return to campus must go through the Recovery Planning Team, led by Lora Strigens, vice president for planning and facilities management, and Jeff Kranz, assistant chief of
    police, Marquette University Police Department.
  • Department chairs or directors may obtain the Return to Campus questionnaire from their vice president, dean or vice provost, who must also signoff on the request.
  • The questionnaire is reviewed by the Recovery Planning Team.
  • To allow for adequate time to review requests, please submit questionnaires two weeks prior to desired date for return to campus.
  • If approved, the requesting unit will be notified and will then work with Facilities Planning and Management to review the cleaning and sanitization needs for their space, as well as any facility-related modifications and space assessments to accommodate physical distancing.
  • All individuals returning to campus will be required to complete a brief online “Return to Campus” training provided by Human Resources.
