There are a number of reasons that campus may close unexpectedly for a short or an extended period of time. Regardless of the reason, we need to be able to continue to provide the best educational experience possible given the closure. This site provides access to tips and tools for managing courses remotely if required due to a campus closure.
Faculty and staff should also review the resources in the Blackboard Course UT-FACOLSUPP. If you are teaching a course at UT and do not have access, please contact Gary Simon.
It is a good idea for you to have plans in place for your personal health and protection regardless of the type of emergency. There is a safety checklist available on SpartanWeb that can help you think of what you need to do to stay safe and to prepare your office space in case of a campus closure. While the checklist focuses most heavily on hurricane preparedness, there is relevant information for any type of emergency.
The Emergency Operations Team will be monitoring all situations and will communicate with the campus community through a variety of means.
