Although the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 has changed the way we’re doing business, the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture (UTIA) remains committed to providing Real. Life. Solutions.

Senior UTIA leadership is meeting regularly with UT System and UT Knoxville leaders to maintain a coordinated response to this evolving situation. Utilizing guidelines established by national and international health organizations, our goal is to reduce the risk that COVID-19 poses to the health and safety of all students, faculty, and staff as well as all visitors utilizing our facilities and educational opportunities. This website will provide information regarding the status of services, new updated guidelines for operations, educational resources about the disease and steps for preventing infection, and some materials appropriate for posting in offices or disseminating locally.

Students, staff, and faculty of all UTIA units and facilities should consult the UT Knoxville coronavirus website for information related to activities including classes and travel. Case managers in the Office of the Dean of Students are ready to assist students in distress through the 865-974-HELP line. Faculty and staff can access support services by calling 865-946-CARE.

Staff and faculty of off-campus facilities—including county UT Extension offices, 4-H centers, and UT AgResearch and Education Centers—should consult with their local supervisors who will work with the appropriate dean and UTIA leadership to determine the status of events and services.
