Campus Re-Opening Planning

Summer and Fall 2020

Several tactical teams will develop proposals for re-opening UTSA's campuses. The work of these teams will be guided by a Public Health Task Force, which will provide input on how best to protect the health of the UTSA community, as well as a set of shared principles

Each tactical team will work over the summer and early fall to develop a report of their findings, a clear set of recommendations, and an action plan for implementation. At the conclusion, each of the co-leads will share the product of their team’s work in open campus forums and with the Faculty & Staff Senates, Department Chairs Council, and University Leadership Council to promote widespread dissemination.

In addition to university leaders, all of these teams will include faculty, staff, students, and stakeholder representation, with many opportunities for wide and ongoing participation. Team member nominations were recently submitted by UTSA leadership across campus, and committee rosters will soon be finalized and posted. Members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT) will serve on various tactical teams to support recovery planning. 

Please direct questions on the tactical teams process to Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives Shannon Heuberger. At the discretion of the president, additional campus-wide teams may be formed as needed. For all other COVID-related inquiries, contact
