The University of Texas at Arlington Provost


April 10, 2020

Dear Students,

Recent weeks have been filled with change, difficulty, stress, and uncertainty. Your resiliency, tenacity, and patience in the face of these challenges have been truly remarkable. Across our schools and colleges, I’ve seen each of you persevere through this very difficult time by coming together as a community to help each other.

You, the students of UTA, are the heart of our Maverick Community. You are the most talented students we could ask for, and I want you to know that every resource at UTA, including over 6,000 faculty and staff, are committed to your success. No matter how great the challenge, we will continue our dedication to bringing you the highest quality education. The University remains available to assist each of you during this time while courses are offered online and many of our employees are working off-site.

We recently announced that we will continue to provide all of UTA’s learning experiences in online formats for Maymester and the Summer Term, and that registration for those offerings has begun. I encourage every student to consider Maymester and Summer Term courses as a way to take classes you may need and possibly accelerate your timeline to achieve your academic goals.

I know that this transition has raised many questions and concerns as we navigate unforeseen challenges. As we learn more and make decisions as a result of the unfolding situation, we are updating our website so the entire community remains informed. Please visit for updated information. You will also receive regular updates through your University email, and you can follow UTA on social media for all the latest updates.

Although we have changed our course delivery methods as a result of this quickly unfolding Coronavirus situation, we remain committed to you, your well-being, and your academic success by providing regular assistance to students.

I want to emphasize that we all have a role to play to minimize the spread of the virus through social distancing. In line with national health guidelines, we strongly encourage all students to stay at home and access facilities through online means. We are similarly directing as many faculty and staff as possible to telecommute.

We are in this together and we are all here for you. I truly hope that all of you are healthy and safe. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything.

Go Mavs,

Teik C. Lim, Ph.D.
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
