The University of Pikeville’s Special Collections and Archives strives to collect, preserve, and make available research items about the history and culture of the University of Pikeville, Eastern Kentucky, and the surrounding counties greater Appalachian region. We hope to be the voice for those who have been overlooked and misunderstood for generations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented changes to UPIKE and the surrounding community. Although the coronavirus was slow to reach the university, our administration began acting immediately to protect our students and the campus community. Classes transitioned quickly from lecture to online and large gatherings, including commencement, were postponed or reconfigured to an online environment. Restaurants in the community started closing their dining rooms, businesses began providing pick-up services and online shopping increased ten-fold.
UPIKE and the surrounding community has survived and thrived through many obstacles, some of which have been recorded in our Archives while others have been lost to time. This project is our attempt to capture the challenges and document the impact that this pandemic has had on our community. It is our opportunity to make sure this experience lives on in the University Archives in our own words.
