Concern About a Student

How to Share a Concern About a Student

*The UMERGENCY app is designed to empower students to be prepared for any emergency, health, or safety situation by putting the power of information in their hands.

Umergency is an all-in-one emergency, health, and safety app. A CARE Concern can also be shared through this app by students. The app is free and available to download in both the App Store and Google play, or at www.umergencyapp.com. Download the app, create an account, and choose UTHSC.

Campus Recreation Center

Our staff believes that physical activity plays a vital role in the development and maintenance of a "healthy, well-adjusted" individual. The Office of Campus Recreation is the focal point for recreational opportunities at UTHSC.

The diverse activities and programs offered by The Campus Recreation Center are a means to educate participants, provide opportunities for group and individual interactions as well as provide assessment and guidance in the area of health-related fitness.
