Community gathering in response to hate speech
Staff lounge in Hodges Library at the University of Tennessee

The UT Libraries is a place for all Vols. In response to the hate speech painted on the Rock yesterday, we are providing our campus community a place for reflection and camaraderie. Tomorrow (9/13/19), our staff lounge on the sixth floor will be available from 8 am to 5 pm as a place anyone can come to reflect and recharge in a supportive environment. Library faculty and staff will provide water and materials to help Vols start conversation and aid personal reflection.

We also invite individuals to use our Silent Room on the 5th floor for independent silent reflection, meditation, or prayer.

All Vols are welcome to join us in showing support for each other.
