About The University of Tennessee

Institution: The University of Tennessee
  Knoxville, TN

Founded in 1794, UT is big on tradition, and we are proud of our humble beginnings as the first public university chartered west of the Appalachian Divide.

We serve the state by educating its citizens, enhancing its culture, and making a difference in people’s lives through research and service.

By attracting the best and brightest students and leading faculty, we are on track to join our peers in the nation’s Top 25 public research institutions. An aggressive roadmap guides our journey.

We are improving undergraduate and graduate education, research, support for faculty and staff, our campus infrastructure, and our resources.
