In January 2010, the state challenged UT to become a Top 25 public research university in a decade. UT accepted this challenge, knowing that the journey will be as important as the end result. The improvements we make will:

  • Increase the quality and value of education
  • Further develop our strengths in research
  • Expand our contribution to economic growth and development
  • Strengthen the University of Tennessee’s flagship campus for the benefit of all Tennesseans

Vol Vision is a roadmap as we take the journey to become a Top 25 public research university. UT Knoxville has set its sights on the goal ahead, and this is the framework that will help us realize our potential as the leading public institution of higher education in Tennessee and beyond.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
