Roaring Back: University Rebound Plan

Idaho State University is ready to roar back from the COVID-19 pandemic. With the safety and well-being of all in mind, the University will resume full campus operations and in-person instruction in August. The University has adopted public health guidelines to achieve “new normal” operations. This new normal will still feel very different than what our employees and students are accustomed to during non-pandemic times. This is intentional, and is important for the health and safety of our students and communities.
