During the pandemic, alumni of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s College of Social Work are finding new ways to provide essential human services to their communities.

Deborah Crawford will lead UT Knoxville’s research as a member of the chancellor’s cabinet, with responsibility for developing and implementing research plans, building innovative partnerships, and raising the university’s national and international reputation.
The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted East Tennessee Chinese/Chinese American Care to help make sure medical personnel and first responders have equipment to do their jobs effectively while staying protected.
