Students wearing masks and socially distancing

The Cardinal NEST Plan

  • A flexible instructional model. SVSU plans to offer classes that are taught face-to-face on campus with appropriate safeguards. To facilitate safety and in accordance with health guidance, SVSU also is prepared to teach courses virtually by remote instruction, or through some combination of online and in-person.
  • Investments in realigned technology to maximize instruction and learning in all courses and to facilitate safe interactions on campus.
  • Students living on campus. SVSU's residence halls have been ranked No. 1 among all public universities in the nation in the annual "best dorms" rankings by Niche. We will take measures to provide a safe living environment in our modern housing facilities.
  • Enhanced health and safety protocols to include guidelines such as wearing masks, practicing social distancing, increased sanitization procedures, and more. SVSU has enjoyed an outstanding campus safety record for many years.
  • Education and training of the campus community to understand what safety measures are put in place, why they are needed, and how to comply.
  • Safe campus dining options. SVSU is working with its dining partner, Aramark, to follow national best practices.
  • An enriching student experience that includes access to academic support services such as tutoring centers, and student support services such as student counseling, as well as student programming, and social and extracurricular activities that are important to the total college experience.
  • Access to medical services. SVSU has a longstanding partnership with Covenant HealthCare, including a MedExpress facility located on campus. SVSU also has relationships with other health care providers in the Great Lakes Bay Region, including several comprehensive health systems located within minutes of SVSU.
  • Testing capacity. SVSU plans to partner with health care providers to provide the ability to quickly test students, faculty and staff, as needed. Residential students who test positive for COVID-19 will be encouraged to return home to isolate if possible. The university will have limited capacity to isolate students on campus.
  • Contact tracing capabilities. SVSU is planning to train a team of contact tracers to be able to quickly identify individuals who may have had contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
