Top 25 and SACS Reaccreditation
We are making a few administrative changes to continue our focus on becoming a Top 25 public research university and to prepare us for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) re-accreditation review in 2015.
Heeding the Challenge
“We never said it was going to be easy. But we did say that we would pursue our goal with abandon.” —Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek
It has been three years since UT was challenged to become a Top 25 public research university. While the journey has already brought about great change, we must address significant challenges ahead to reach our goal.
Take 15, Graduate in 4
We have embarked on an all-out effort to make on-time graduation the new norm for our students. Starting in the fall of 2013, our full-time undergraduates will be charged for 15 credit hours per semester—the number they must take to graduate in four years.
'Chancellor's Challenge' Seeks to Boost Endowments
If we want to be a Top 25 public research university, we have to recruit and retain the very best faculty. In these lean economic times, we can't do that on our own. We need the help of individuals, companies, and organizations who are willing to invest in our efforts to educate students.
Ready for the World
The University of Tennessee has embarked on an ambitious plan to help students gain the international and intercultural knowledge they need to succeed in today's world.
