UTHSC Special Events and Community Affairs

The Office of Special Events & Community Affairs coordinates campus wide events as well as programs that respond to the need of the community, improving the quality of life. 


One primary focus is to assist the university in building lasting relationship by developing, producing, managing and creating the appropriate atmosphere to execute quality events.

This office is the first point of contact for all events hosted by the Chancellor and Executive Vice Chancellor, events involving the appearance of public officials, UT President and Trustees. This office is a liaison to the campus community offering insight, direction and assistance with various levels of events that support the strategic plan and mission of the university. Our goal in being a resource to the campus consists of:

  • Being a centralized location for support of all UTHSC sanctioned events and outreach initiatives
  • Assisting with scheduling conflicts through the management of the Special Events Calendar
  • Maximizing opportunities and resources
  • Providing guidelines for excellent event planning
