From the Senior Vice President
and Senior Vice Chancellor
April 9, 2020, Update
As we prepare for this long holiday weekend, I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all that you are doing to encourage others and to help them stay safe. I know the restrictions placed on us due to the COVID-19 pandemic can be tough, especially as we work to continually provide academic courses, Extension programs, urgent animal care, and vital research. However, this is our chance to make a positive impact for the good of all the citizens of Tennessee, as well as our families and friends.
We hope you will take a minute to share innovative work you are doing to meet our mission by visiting utia.tennessee.edu/coronavirus. There you will find a place to enter your information. UTIA Marketing and Communications will collect the information to help highlight our successes. You will also find new Zoom backgrounds branded with UTIA, with others being added in the future.
Please use this long weekend to relax, reflect, and enjoy your time. We will get through this and come out even stronger.
