Claire Mayo is the associate administrator of academic programs and the college curriculum coordinator for the UT College of Arts and Sciences. In these roles, she is the primary resource for departments during the curriculum process, advising faculty and staff regarding curriculum issues and submissions through Curriculog.
She also assists the Associate Dean Liem Tran with the college’s online Bachelor of Arts in interdisciplinary programs.
“As the college curriculum coordinator, I enjoy collaborating across the college and university to create accessible and legible pathways to degree completion,” said Mayo. “I especially appreciate the synergy between the college’s three divisions to promote interdisciplinary studies addressing society’s most pressing questions.”
Her background as a historian and disaster scholar complements these initiatives. Mayo earned her BA degree in French and history from Elon University in 2014, an MA in French studies from New York University in 2015, and a PhD in modern European history here at UT Knoxville in 2022.
“As an independent scholar, I have written peer-reviewed articles on topics ranging from disaster recovery, media representations of risk, and ungrading assessment models in large classroom settings,” she said.
Outside of work, Mayo runs, gardens, and spends time with friends and families in East Tennessee, which is always, she says, “home sweet home.”
