Whether it is your first time on campus or last semester, it is good to know of all resources available on campus to keep you safe and healthy. Our priority toward campus well-being starts with advertising of the many services our own Police Department and Safety and Risk Management office provides; in addition, many of our own staff are representatives, advocates or participants with other programs across campus.
The UTC Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, led by Vice Chancellor Dr. Yancy Freeman, has professionals trained specifically to support you through your search for a university home. Once UTC is your university of choice, this team is here to guide and support from your first days on campus throughout their academic career—financial aid, orientation, student engagement, tutorials, career planning, multicultural activities and even more offices ready to enrich the student experience and to put students first.

The University Title XI office strives to prevent, address, and eliminate misconduct by responding to individual incidents, supporting those who have been harmed, and educating community members on how to create a safe and supportive campus that encourages healthy and respectful relationships. You may have seen Know More @ UTC flyer, advertising and signage around campus.
