Chancellor’s COVID-19 Updates

I invite you to join me for regular livestream updates on COVID-19 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Every Friday, members of my team will join me to share the latest data for our campus, discuss recent developments, and look ahead to the coming days and weeks.


We will also use these updates to address the questions and concerns that are on your mind. Submit questions using the form below and we will use them to develop content for these updates and other communications. Live updates will continue throughout the semester as we work together to navigate this pandemic with compassion, flexibility, and creativity.

Updates began Thursday, August 13, with an update for faculty and staff at 12:30 p.m. and a separate update for students and families beginning at 1:30 p.m. Beginning Tuesday, August 18, updates were streamed every Tuesday and Friday at 11:30 a.m. On October 2, we moved to one broadcast each week—Fridays at 11:30 a.m.
