Illinois State University faculty and staff laid out multiple concerns and suggestions for the return of students in the fall in an open letter addressed to President Larry Dietz.

The letter demands more protection and transparency to reopen and protect campus and the Bloomington-Normal community. 

The letter, penned Monday, argues that ISU's draft reopening plan does not do enough to protect the campus community and Bloomington-Normal residents, or provide backup plans if the virus were to come to campus or Bloomington-Normal. 

As of today, the letter already has over 100 signatures from ISU faculty members, alums and students. 

The letter can be read below by clicking on the PDF.
