UPIKE will move classes online

A message from President Burton J. Webb Ph.D.

We are committed to following the recommendations of the state and county health officials and preparing our campus accordingly. Today, we received a recommendation from the Pike County Health Taskforce to transition all UPIKE classes into an online format. Starting Monday, March 16, all classes will be fully online. This includes undergraduate, graduate, KYCOM and KYCO students. All course lectures, assignments and materials will be in Canvas. Students and instructors will be in close communication as the UPIKE family works to make this a successful transition. 

UPIKE will remain open for those students who do not have access to housing, food or technology. Students who remain on campus will have access to all critical services but will also move to online learning.

Along with our partners in the public health office, we will continue to assess the need to remain online. Should we decide to transition instruction back to on-campus delivery, we will notify the UPIKE family as soon as possible.

UPIKE has a variety of tools that will enable us to operate electronically. Students should access Canvas or contact their professor for further information. 

Communication continues to be vitally important in navigating the evolving COVID-19 situation. As a team, we will make decisions that keep our campus community moving forward and learning.
