As the Coronavirus severely impacted the lives of people around the world, the pandemic disrupted and rapidly dispersed the Sacred Heart University community across the globe. The Remembering COVID-19 Project, which is a partnership between the History Department and the Sacred Heart University Library, seeks to collect, preserve, and share our community's experiences of and responses to the global pandemic. We invite SHU students, faculty, staff, and alumni to collect records of their experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and submit them to this collection, which will be made available for future research of this historic time.
Please feel free to submit your experiences in any format, including photographs, diaries, audio recordings, videos, correspondences, social media posts, essays, blog posts, or class projects.
If you choose to submit written personal reflections, here are some prompts to help you get started:
Before submitting your materials, please read the entire Informed Consent.
Once you are ready, you may use our Submission Form to submit your digital materials.
If you are submitting an oral history class project, use our Oral History Submission Form.
And if you have any questions about the submission process or if you would like to submit physical materials, please contact us at rememberCOVID@mail.sacredheart.edu.
