University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the University of Tennessee Knoxville is Tennessee's largest research institution, leading the state in the number of degrees awarded annually. From eleven colleges, our students receive undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees from more than 300 programs. Our faculty is composed of passionate instructors and world-renowned scholars. Faculty and staff work together to help our students succeed and set a high standard of excellence in teaching, research, and service. As a research-intensive institution, our students—undergraduate and graduate—delve further into subjects they may have only dreamed about. Recent examples include advanced manufacturing institutes, zero-energy housing, and using supercomputers for medical breakthroughs. From improving mental health and education to economics and taxation efficiencies, our work impacts people, places, and industries throughout the world. Substantial support for the research effort comes from the Office of Research and Engagement. For example, its Professional Development Program offers workshops in proposal development, grant writing, fellowship grants, and compliance free of charge for faculty, staff, and graduate students who are responsible for or interested in the requirements for funded research. It also provides a variety of funding opportunities for active scholars on campus.  More information about UTK, visit the university website.
