CLEVELAND – July 9, 2020 – Following Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s unveiling of his Restart Ohio plan for higher education earlier today, Cleveland State University issued the following statement of support:
Cleveland State University joins with other Ohio colleges and universities across the state in applauding the unwavering leadership Governor Mike DeWine has shown throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, he further demonstrated that leadership in announcing a thorough and well-reasoned set of guidelines to assist Ohio’s institutions of higher education in repopulating their campuses in the safest way possible this fall.
The Governor and his staff and advisors have consistently sought input from higher education in developing these guidelines and have listened to our hopes and concerns for the return to in-person teaching and learning on our campuses. He recognizes the significant challenges involved in returning to on-campus operations in a way that is as safe as possible for students, faculty and staff, and has been steadfast in advocating for additional federal funding to help make that possible.
