WesternU’s COVID-19 Pandemic Stories

WesternU’s COVID-19 Pandemic Stories

In March, Western University of Health Sciences closed its campus in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, faculty and staff began working from home and the university transitioned to online-only classes.  For the purpose of documenting the impact on the university community, University Archives is collecting digital materials related to the pandemic.

Examples of materials we are looking for include: 

  • • Digital photographs
  • • Materials related to virtual events
  • • Short audio and video diaries
  • • Social media posts

To submit content, please email University Archives at uarchives@westernu.edu and let us know what you would like to donate. At that point, we will provide instructions on how to submit the content.  University Archives hopes everyone stays safe and healthy during this time.
