Return To Work Resource Guide

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, has been guided by three core values in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Keep our community healthy and hopeful.
  • Keep students on track toward success.
  • Be creative. Be compassionate. Be flexible.

Those values will continue to guide the campus community as students, faculty, and staff return to campus this fall. In addition, the campus’s plans are data-driven and follow the expertise of local, state, and federal health authorities.

The information in our resource guide explains what the university is doing, what employees need to do, and supports and resources that are available

Please note that the information in this document is evolving and will be updated as circumstances and health guidance change.

The behavior expectations are the foundation of our efforts. The best protective measures and the most extensive supports and resources are only as good as the habits we develop as a campus community. We need to have the courage to change our behaviors and set an example for others.
