Communities of Care

With excitement, CEHHS AE will launch a new initiative this academic year: Communities of Care. This initiative aims to foster a culture of compassion, belonging, and support among our CEHHS community. We hope these groups will complement the educational Communities of Practice featured in our college’s many professional development events.

Volunteer Orange Book

The Volunteer Orange Book serves as a source for the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Education, Health & Human Sciences. It is modeled after The Negro Motorist Green Book with an emphasis on resources for historically underrepresented populations. It is our desire that colleagues (graduate students, staff, faculty, and administrators) find this resource helpful.
