ORE Staff Keeping Regular Business Hours

Blount Hall may be closed, but the Office of Research and Engagement staff continue to support the research and creative efforts of UT faculty and students. Interim Vice Chancellor for Research Matthew Mench is working closely with Chancellor Plowman and UT’s Emergency Operations Center to keep the research community updated on policies related to the continuation of research.

Following the recommendations issued by the Chancellor, the majority of our staff will be working remotely until further notice. You will still be able to reach ORE staff via email during regular business hours (Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.).

If you have questions, please email and we will make sure your issue is addressed as soon as possible.
