From the President

March 25, 2020


Cowboy Family,


As we continue to do our part as a university to respond to the spread of COVID-19, we are making daily decisions to do more as the situation continues to evolve. The well-being and safety of our campus community is of the utmost priority.

All Campus Buildings Closing Today


The University is closing all buildings on the Stillwater campus to visitors beginning 6 p.m., March 25 through April 15, unless extended or rescinded earlier. Employees will have access to their buildings.

We are grateful for our dedicated staff and faculty who will continue to provide operational continuity through telecommuting and, for some, on-campus work to support essential and mission-critical functions. These essential operations include research functions in labs which will continue to be open to our research personnel with the expectation that social distancing measures are in place.

Supervisors, please continue to work with your staff regarding options for telecommuting during this time. Individuals who have serious underlying medical conditions or adults over 65 years old should be instructed to shelter in their home unless they are performing a mission-critical function and can maintain appropriate social distancing in accordance with Governor Stitt’s order of “Safer at Home.” Supervisors, please prioritize the concerns of these groups and consult with your HR Consultant if there are questions.
