To the UTC community,
Many of you have expressed your worries over the recent Executive Order on immigration, and we continue to work to understand the implications of this order and its changing application.
Our top priority has to be the safety and well-being of the campus community. We are committed to a diverse campus and to preparing students for success in a global economy. That means recruiting, retaining, and supporting faculty, staff, and students from different cultures around the world.
If you have questions or concerns about your individual situation or international travel plans, I encourage you to contact our Center for Global Education in 202 Hooper Hall, (423) 425-4348. We are offering our support and assistance to campus community members, especially those from the seven countries named in the order.
Among our core values, we embrace diversity and inclusion, and we strive to live integrity and civility. These remain essential to our campus culture, and I hope that each of us will take this opportunity to reflect them in our daily interactions. We support the members of our community.
