In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, Shippensburg University closed on-campus services and transitioned to virtual instruction for the second half of the spring semester. Most students were required to move off-campus, faculty retooled courses for remote instruction, staff transitioned to working from home, and administrators debated the appropriate course of action in order to ensure the well-being of our community.

This site, published by Shippensburg University Archives & Special Collections, is intended to document how COVID-19 impacted the lives of SU community members. While the Archives regularly collects records that document the decisions and actions of university administration and staff in their official capacity, we need the help of students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and family. In order to fully understand the consequences of this pandemic on our university, we're calling on you to contribute your stories, photos, and videos to the Shippensburg University COVID-19 Community Response Collection.
