Message from the Chancellor


Dear Colleagues-Friends,

As the horrific violence and human loss in the Middle East continues, we express our concern for all who are suffering. Further, our thoughts are with all those who have family and friends in the Middle East. Let us offer understanding, comfort, and support to all in our community, as we process these tragic events in the hope of future peace and healing soon in this region. 

We reaffirm our revulsion of violence. We are aware that members of our community are being impacted in profound ways, with reactions ranging from anger, fear, and sadness. Accordingly, we have counseling and other services available to those who may need support or someone to talk to during this difficult time. We encourage you to reach out to our UTHSC resources:
