Message from the Provost


August 29, 2017


Dear UTA Faculty,

First, thank you for the compassion you are showing to our students and their families who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. I also send my heartfelt concern for your colleagues, friends and family who were impacted.

As our university does what it can do to help our students and families who are affected, I’m reaching out to you to ask for your highest sensitivities toward students in your classes and labs who may need special assistance to continue their studies with us.

Thousands of our on-campus and Academic Online (AO) students are from areas impacted by the storm. Please make reasonable accommodations to assist these students in your classes. This may include providing them additional time to complete their assignments, rescheduling their exams and/or providing them with an incomplete so that they can complete their course at a later date. I realize that the exact accommodation provided may vary by the nature of the course, and timing and severity of the individual cases.


If your students require immediate assistance, please refer them to Student Affairs at or 817-272-6080.


If you have questions, suggestions or special academic cases to discuss, please contact Academic Affairs at or 817-272-2103.

We will do everything in our capacity to help our students during this difficult time.
