Distressed Student Hotline
If you are concerned or worried for a student, observe a behavior that makes you uncomfortable, or you feel like a student may harm themselves or others, 865-974-HELP is where you can call for support. The goal of 865-974-HELP is to provide help and support to all students, enabling them to succeed and thrive while at UT.
Don’t Cancel Class
Rather than canceling class, faculty can request one of more than 20 available workshops or trainings to be presented during class time.
The Division of Student Life Professional Development Committee is charged by the vice chancellor for student life with providing professional development opportunities for staff.
The committee is responsible for planning and executing the following developmental programs each semester:
- Two educational programs related to our work in student life or higher education
- One social program with the goal of developing team unity and spirit
- One community service program with the goal of providing an opportunity to have staff involved with local service
Additionally, the committee is responsible for leading the effort to plan and execute Professional Development Day, held annually during the spring semester.
