WKU Restart Plan
Members of the WKU Community are invited to provide feedback on WKU's Big Red Restart Plan through this form. The WKU COVID-19 Task Force will continue to adjust the plan based on community feedback and guidance from public health officials. Please refer back to this site frequently for the most up-to-date information on WKU's restart plan.
COVID-19 changed the world. As we navigated through the spring semester at WKU, transitioning from the in-person experience to remote, one thing became clear: the WKU family yearned to be together again.
The Big Red Restart is our plan to bring us back together, safely. Until a vaccine is developed and widely distributed, we must, as a community, learn to live and operate differently during a pandemic. Our focus is on a return to an on-campus environment, but this fall semester will be different than any we’ve experienced. Our plan is nimble, flexible and responsive so that we can provide the quality educational experience our students desire and deserve while keeping all of our communities safe.
