August 30, 2021

Faculty, Staff, and Students,

This past weekend, a massive amount of rain flooded several counties in middle Tennessee. Lives have been lost, homes have been destroyed, and it has been declared a major disaster for the state of Tennessee.

Our fellow Tennesseans need our help!

Campus Police is hosting a donation drive to collect the following needed supplies on Wednesday, September 1 through Friday, September 3, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, at the Van Vleet Building on the Memphis campus:

  • bottled water
  • hand sanitizer
  • cleaning supplies
  • nonperishable food items
  • diapers
  • personal toiletries

If you are unable to bring the requested donations listed above to the Van Vleet Building on September 1 – 3, please consider making a monetary donation online to one of these disaster relief organizations:

The UTHSC campus has always been passionate when it comes to upholding the important mission of public service. I greatly appreciate any donation that you can make toward this recovery effort, and I know the people of Middle Tennessee are grateful for any assistance we can provide them.

Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Operations Officer
