The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is committed to creating a vibrant multicultural, multi-ethnic community where diverse students, faculty, and staff are recruited and retained and where diversity scholarship is valued.
UT seeks to develop graduates who can effectively work across differences and who are prepared to live and work in a global society. We have initiated several university-wide programs to raise awareness of and support for diversity, such as the annual Collaborators for Change diversity summit, the African American Trailblazer speaking series, and the Women in STEM Symposium.
