Shockers United: The plan to reopen Wichita State's campus

In the face of the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, Wichita State's first priority is the health, safety and well-being of our entire Shocker community. In accordance with guidance from the State of Kansas and federal government, Wichita State University has developed a three-phase plan to safely return students, faculty and staff to our campus over the next several months.

Help protect those who are protecting us

In response to the need among our health care workers, fire, police and EMS personnel during this difficult time, Wichita State University is serving as a central community repository for donations of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Any company or member of the community who would also like to support these professionals is encouraged to make a donation to the Wichita State initiative as the university coordinates this ongoing effort.
