University Return-to-Campus Training

As noted in recent university updates, all faculty, staff and students returning to offices or campuses must complete an online training course and the Together As Buckeyes Pledge form. The pledge acknowledges an understanding of and commitment to the behaviors described in the training. It is not a legal waiver. The 10-minute training is available in BuckeyeLearn, and the pledge will be signed upon completion of the course.   

Per the university leadership, completing the training and signing the pledge are mandatory for all faculty, staff and students returning to offices or campuses. Those who have already been working on campus should take the online training and sign the pledge as soon as possible. For those not physically returning to a campus, the training and pledge need to be completed by the start of autumn semester on Aug. 25. 

The training course will cover expectations for daily health checks, personal protection such as face masks, hygiene, staying informed, and more.
