Message from the Dean of TAMS

Dear TAMS Students,

Thank you for your patience as our team continues to work intensely to ensure the successful continuity of your educational endeavors. Your health and safety are our top priority, as you can surely see reaffirmed in President Smatresk’s message earlier today.

We put resources in place to facilitate learning through alternative delivery methods – please take advantage of Courses with TAMS students will be delivered online for the remainder of the semester. For those conducting undergraduate research, your mentor will work directly with you.

After you hear from your instructors, feel free to reach out to them through email or the Canvas portal for any further details about your courses. Also, if you find that any of your courses is not proceeding online, please communicate with your academic counselor. As always, your TAMS academic counselor will be working closely with faculty to support your academic success.

Additionally, if you have questions about materials needed for your classes that still remain at McConnell Hall, our Student Life team will be working with you to facilitate access to materials – in some cases (e.g. students far from DFW), we may be able to provide digitized course materials. Please reach out to if you have specific questions pertaining to McConnell procedures or other Student Life matters.

Finally, I should point out that our counseling team is fully engaged to support you and provide online appointments. If you had previous plans and appointments with a counselor, simply confirm your appointments with them. To make new appointments, please use Appointment Manager online, as you did in the past – the options for online or phone appointments will be available. At this time, more than ever, our counselors are here to help you!

TAMS and all of UNT are committed to the health and safety of everyone in our community.  Our whole team will continue to provide high quality services so that you can succeed in achieving your academic goals. 

Stay safe and healthy!

With optimism and best wishes,

Glênisson de Oliveira, Ph.D.
Dean of TAMS and the Honors College
