Community Activities Office Fall 2020 Reopening Plan & Operations

UPDATE - Effective 8/31/20 the Kehr Union Building was locked down as a result of the COVID pandemic. Anyone needing to visit our office for an appointment and/or to drop off deposits (drop box/in-person), you must call 570-389-4462 and make an appointment during normal business hours to gain entry into the building. All of the office operations below are still in effect, with this new step. Thank you for your understanding! Stay Safe!

Bloomsburg University Faculty, Staff and Students,

As we begin to re-open campus, employees will be provided with a variety of options to access Community Activities Office support while maintaining an emphasis on safety.

Most Community Activities Office processes support electronic submission. In the interest of public safety, please continue to submit documentation to the Community Activities Office electronically when possible. Thank you, in advance, for partnering with us to place employee safety at the forefront of our processes.

If you require assistance with submitting documents/forms to the Community Activities Office documentation, please email Dawn Ritter (dritter@bloomu.edu) or Joyce Grosz (jgrosz@bloomu.edu).

If you need to speak to someone in person, please call the office main desk at 570-389-4462.

CGA Student Fee

Please be advised that the Community Activities Budget allocations are now available for use for the 2020/21 fiscal year. We are requesting that you prioritize spending and be mindful of expenses that you can potentially delay to later in the semester, as we are still working through unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Should circumstances change that would force a return to the RED phase and instruction returning to on-line only, we will likely experience an event that would prompt a refund of the unused portion of the student fee much like the Spring of 2020. Consequently, that in turn may have impacts on future allocations. We are asking that we work together to process appropriate expenses that provide a robust array of programs, events, and activities to our students, while being cognizant of the aforementioned. Thank you in advance for your support as we navigate through these extraordinary times.

CGA Travel

In support of the safety and well-being of the Bloomsburg University Community and in compliance with Bloomsburg University COVID-19 Travel Guidelines, all CGA travel, which is all travel funded or supported by CGA, has been deemed non-essential and will, therefore be prohibited until further notice.
