The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is on a journey to become a top public research university. Our journey began in 2010 when UT accepted an ambitious Top 25 challenge from then-governor Phil Bredesen. In response, UT developed Vol Vision, our strategic plan that set priorities to guide campus advancement and resource decisions from 2010 through 2015.
Over the past five years, the journey has come to represent a long-term commitment to continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence. To observe this important five-year mark and set the course for the future, UT seeks to review its accomplishments and make necessary adjustments in strategic direction. To this end, Provost Susan Martin convened a Milestone Review Committee to lead a campus conversation on opportunities to refresh Vol Vision for the next five-year phase of the journey. The committee is seeking feedback from the campus community during fall 2015.
