Over the next few weeks, we will be engaging stakeholders both inside and outside of the University and across the state to gather ideas and identify and maximize opportunities through listening sessions, interviews, and surveys. We believe there are many exciting opportunities that can be identified by our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and other stakeholders. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas at an upcoming brainstorming session.

Purpose

On June 21, 2019, the UT Board of Trustees approved the re-unification of the UT Institute of Agriculture (UTIA) with UT Knoxville (UTK) to fully leverage our statewide presence and foster a culture of greater collaboration to more fully deliver on our land-grant mission of education, research and outreach to benefit the state of Tennessee.

To capture important stakeholder input, a UTIA-UTK Land-grant Unification Team has been formed and is charged with identifying and engaging stakeholders across the state. While the team will not determine policies or initiatives, they will reach out to stakeholders and identify ways to gather input. Once input has been gathered, the team will synthesize and summarize the feedback, identify common themes, organize recommendations, and present the findings to interim President Randy Boyd, Senior Vice President/Senior Vice Chancellor of Agriculture Tim Cross, and UT Knoxville Chancellor Donde Plowman. Details will be presented to the Board of Trustees at the November Board meeting.
