The State University of New York at Fredonia is preparing for the return of students, faculty and staff for the Fall 2020 semester, following SUNY’s approval of Fredonia’s reopening plan.

“Western New York has just entered Phase 4 reopening for the regional economy, and even better, SUNY has just certified our campus’ Fall 2020 Reopening Plan,” said Interim President Dennis L. Hefner in an email to the campus community. “We will now begin to implement our plan, realizing changing circumstances could dictate some further adjustments.”

A steering committee and three subcommittees are working on finer details of the plan and will provide guidance to campus as the information evolves. “Please remember the situation is still fluid, and may change,” Interim President Hefner said. “Our top priority is providing for the safety of everyone.”

Students will arrive in August and participate in classes through the week of Thanksgiving. After the holiday, it will be a distance learning set up, similar to the spring semester.

The approved plan is available on the Fredonia website at https://www.fredonia.edu/returning
