Penn State faculty can submit questions about return to classroom and campus

June 26, 2020

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — A new forum for accepting questions from faculty related to Penn State’s plans for a return to classrooms in the fall has been launched by the Provost’s Office as an additional avenue for communicating suggestions, concerns and updates.

“As we continue to plan a return to campus, I know there are many questions that remain and we are committed to working with governance and advisory bodies through all of the details. We have been fielding many of your questions individually and our hope is that this past Monday’s Town Hall meeting was another important step in our continuing efforts to communicate what we know at this time about the University’s possible next phase,” said Provost Nick Jones. “To better respond to your concerns, we are creating a place where you can log your questions and we invite you to submit them so that we can gain a keener awareness of what our faculty are thinking and considering. We are here to support you and we are listening.”  

Faculty with questions can log on at and submit their inquiries, which will be answered on a regular basis with available information and published as part of a regular email update for all faculty. Questions may be submitted anonymously, or submitters may wish to include their name and department or college. 

“Given the monumental tasks we face for a phased return in the fall, rest assured that I and others in leadership at Penn State are intent on continuing to provide as much information and guidance to you as we can,” Jones said.
