The quality of a university is a direct reflection of the quality of its faculty. As the University of Tennessee moves up in the ranks of the nation’s leading research universities, its faculty leads the way. They are alive to ideas, quick to question, dogged in the pursuit of knowledge.
Their teaching, research, and service to the community and the state distinguish the institution, as their predecessors’ accomplishments have throughout UT’s 200-year-plus history. To be a faculty member at the University of Tennessee connotes an uncommon level of scholarly accomplishment, a strong commitment to students, and a liberal dose of Tennessee Volunteer spirit.
