Oakland City University preparing to reopen campus

Local News

OAKLAND CITY, Ind. (WEHT)- Oakland City University announced Wednesday that it is preparing to reopen its main campus, as well as its multiple Adult Professional Studies campuses, for the fall semester.

The university says normal staff operations will resume at its campuses on June 1 and adds that safety protocols for social distancing and using personal protective equipment have been instituted.

In a release, the university mentions that returning to normal staff operations will allow the university to test its preparedness and make adjustments as necessary before students and faculty return.

Oakland City University President, Ron D. Dempsey, says the university can better monitor, detect, and quarantine the campus community because of its smaller student population. The university is expected to release “more complete plans for reopening” in June.
