As a first-generation college student, I am thankful to be at the University of Tennessee, and I can’t wait to see what the future has for me here.

Tri-Star Scholarship Program

Commitment to student success runs deep at UT. At the state’s flagship land-grant university, the Tri-Star Scholarship Program is valued for its capacity to provide Tennessee residents with access to the Volunteer experience.

Impact Stories

Three new units launched this fall at UT: the College of Music, the Baker School of Public Policy and Public Affairs, and the College of Emerging and Collaborative Studies. All three offer new avenues of opportunity for current and prospective students, as well as alumni and donors looking to impact and support them. While the College of Emerging and Collaborative Studies is completely new, two of these units previously existed—the College of Music and the Baker School—and already have an enthusiastic base of supporters who are enabling access and fueling the student experience.
