Message from the Interim Provost: COVID-19 Faculty Resources

Tuesday, September 1, 2020 :: Office of the Provost

Dear Faculty Colleagues:

Welcome to a new semester! Thank you for all you've done to make our first week a huge success. Our students are settling in as I hope all of you are as well. COVID-19 presents us with so many “firsts” that we thought it would be helpful to send all of the resources available to you in one message that you can reference when needed.

During the summer we created a website for the purpose of serving as a first stop for faculty, students, and staff to identify resources of particular relevance to an academic year marked by our need to adapt to the effects of COVID-19. This first stop or “landing page” also contains a searchable FAQ that you can also help build by submitting unanswered questions.

In addition to our landing page, below is a list of direct links to popular resources to help ensure your safety and success. We are hoping these can support your efforts to respond to concerns regarding or expressed by students during this time.

Again, more information, including updates and announcements are available on our landing page. Updates and announcements will also be shared through email and UTRGV Messenger under the Policy and Processes header. For any questions, concerns or input, please email

Please continue to keep yourself, your loved ones and our community safe and healthy. 


Janna Arney, Ph.D.

Interim Provost and Deputy President
