UPIKE moves online in cooperation with state guidance

In cooperation with the guidelines announced Wednesday, November 18,
from Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, the University of Pikeville will transition to virtual
learning on Monday, November 23, for most undergraduate students. Since the university had planned to finish the remainder of the semester virtually after Thanksgiving, UPIKE will begin
the transition only a few days earlier than expected.

“Our faculty and staff have been preparing to transition to virtual learning since last summer and
are well equipped to continue working with students through our Hyflex learning model,” said
UPIKE President Burton Webb, Ph.D. “UPIKE stands ready to do our part to keep our
community safe. Although many things have changed in the wake of COVID-19, our core value
of service to others remains steadfast.”

With months of preparation, UPIKE has virtual support services available to students during
remote learning as well as access to advisors, faculty and coaches. From tutoring and library
services to student activities and counseling, UPIKE students can remain connected while away
from campus.
