Spring Final Exams Policy for Rhodes College Guests

Spring Final Exams Policy for Guests at Rhodes College 

 Monday, April 21 – Monday, May 5, 2014

The Rhodes College Barret Library will restrict STUDY use to current Rhodes students, faculty and staff

We appreciate the return of all books from guests at this timeThis restriction will last until Monday, May 5, 2014. During Final Exams the Library will be at full capacity.  It is not fair if our students cannot find space to study, so therefore we are restricting guests from the Library during this time. Our Campus Safety team has been notified of this policy and will enforce it.

Thank you and please contact me with any questions.

Condolences Listserv

Are you a member of the Condolences Listserv?  In September 2010, OED responded to several faculty and staff requests encouraging greater campus communication regarding the loss of a team member and the sharing of a team member’s personal loss for support.

As a result the Condolences Listserv was created and launched on September 15, 2010 for each UTHSC employee to join through a voluntary subscription process. The purpose of the Condolences Listserv is to provide UTHSC faculty and staff employees a voluntary option to subscribe to a campus-based listserv to announce the loss of a team member and/or communicate when loss occurs in a team member’s immediate and extended families to include funeral arrangements/services.

There are some guidelines with the subscribed list that is moderated by the Office of Equity and Diversity staff.  Specifically, the death of a team member, faculty or staff employee’s parent or foster parent, sister, brother, spouse, child, step-child, father-in-law, mother-in-law, step-parent, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, partner warrants communication through the Condolences Listserv by subscribers.

In conclusion, diversity is often described as being similarities and differences, but for each of us grief is a normal part of life that inevitably touches all of us. When a member of the UTHSC community is grieving the loss of a loved one, colleague or co-worker, the entire workplace feels the effect. To subscribe to the list, interested parties should go to
