*From the desk of Marie Blistan, NJEA President
As you are likely aware, the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education (OSHE) has issued guidance for New Jersey’s colleges and universities as they begin to plan for a phased reopening, which may begin on a limited basis as early as next month.
NJEA’s Legal Services office has prepared an advisory to help higher education leaders and members navigate the OSHE document and ensure that any reopening is done safely and appropriately. In particular, please note that the OSHE guidance anticipates that colleges’ planning should involve the faculty, staff and students.
As always, if you have any concerns or specific questions regarding your college’s handling of its phased reopening, please contact your UniServ field representative immediately.
