Message of Understanding and Flexibility to Faculty and Staff


You are important members of our Volunteer Community and that extends to your families as well.

We have said from the beginning we will manage through this crisis by being creative, compassionate and flexible. That is still true.

Supervisors, please work with your teams to support them, as people, and as employees, some of whom have families, as we all work to navigate this together.

We need to support our students and keep them on track to graduate. That’s our mission.

But we also need to support our employees who are critical to that effort.

Thank you, and go Vols.
