If you are contacted or made aware of a student’s passing, please notify the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Life at 865-974-7449 or studentlife@utk.edu. The Vice Chancellor for Student Life will notify appropriate university offices and officials and ensure that the needs of the family are addressed.
