Wednesday event will exhibit UND’s response to COVID-19 pandemic


The University of North Dakota is hosting “The Power of Our Community: How UND responded to and was affected by the pandemic” at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8, at the Empire Arts Center.

To commemorate the nearly three years since the start of the COVID pandemic, at the request of President Andy Armacost, journalist and adjunct instructor Chuck Haga interviewed more than 50 UND people about how we responded to and were affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The video collection of interviews and photos will serve as a historical archive of how our community came together to navigate through the pandemic.

President Armacost, as well as Haga, will give a few remarks and show video highlights. Also set to speak are Sarah Heitkamp, UND Art Collections curator, and Zeineb Yousif, digital initiatives librarian at the Chester Fritz Library, both of whom have worked on documenting and archiving UND’s response.

A new pandemic exhibit will also be on display at the Empire Arts Center. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.
