Special Collections & Archives

The collection's logo
This collection documents experiences of Wake Forest University community members during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as well as the pandemic's convergence with social justice movements related to the murders of Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, and several others, including the murder of John Neville in Forsyth County's jail. Materials provide evidence of administrative and academic work related to the University as well as personal experiences. Document types include artwork, audio and video files, e-mail correspondence and newsletters, course assignments, photographs, and storytelling mediums, among others. SCA is collecting University records, including WFU web sites, as possible. In all of these materials, terms used to describe the virus vary and include COVID, COVID-19, coronavirus, pandemic, or quarantine.

Community members are invited to submit digital files to be included in the University collections. To send physical items or if you have questions, please contact archives@wfu.edu.
