From the Senior Vice President
and Senior Vice Chancellor

August 14, 2020

Students are returning to campus and class instruction begins Wednesday of next week. As we work to stay on top of emerging COVID cases, UT Knoxville has developed a campus dashboard to track any positive cases and space closures. The dashboard is updated regularly. Remember that students, faculty, and staff must complete the daily health self-screening prior to coming to campus. This is a critical step in helping us keep track of cases as accurately as possible.

Many thanks to Heather Sedges, associate professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, who was our guest today on the Fireside Chat. She shared some excellent information on helping us all cope during this stressful time. Heather has developed a web page which provides many resources available to all UTIA employees. I encourage you to take a look, especially if you feel you are in need of support in managing stress. We want everyone to receive the support they may need to take care of themselves, their co-workers, and their families.

I hope you enjoy your weekend, take a little time for yourself, and we will see you next week.
