The University of Tennessee Health Science Center has had a strong and established tradition of volunteer faculty participation in its missions. Indeed, volunteer faculty play a major role in educating our students in their chosen profession. UTHSC recognizes that our students would be less proficient in their chosen field without exposure to practicing clinicians and researchers. The UTHSC Faculty Handbook, specifically Section 6.2.6, has more information on the appointment and promotion of volunteer faculty.

If you are a new volunteer faculty member, we welcome you and thank you for your faculty efforts!

Volunteer faculty may access a variety of services at UTHSC including, but not limited to:

  • Library Resources
  • Campus Recreation (aka, Fitness Center). Volunteer faculty/staff are eligible for a "UTHSC Affiliate" membership ($175/year), which is deeply discounted at half the price of our usual community membership ($325/year). Our fitness center membership policy provides specific information, as well as links to other Fitness Center information.

To access some UTHSC resources, volunteer faculty require one or more of the following:

  • NetID and password - all students, faculty, and staff at the University of Tennessee have a NetID and password. Your NetID permits secure access to several web-based applications, including the Library, Blackboard, and others. Your appointing department can notify you once you have a NetID.
    • How do you know you have a NetID? Once you are added to our online directory, your NetID (an 8-character unique identifier) is official and can be used.
  • UTHSC ID card - Identification cards allow access to secure buildings on campus, including the Library, Fitness Center, and other facilities and activities. ID cards must be worn in a visible fashion when on campus. Read more about ID cards and controlled access systems.

Annual FERPA Notice for Faculty & Staff - our institution must comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) that establishes legal parameters governing access to and release of student records. The link provides contact information for the Office of the Registrar and has a comprehensive FAQ.
