Additional members include a representative from the UTC Faculty Senate and a student representative from UTC.

Operating under the FOCUS Act

The UT FOCUS Act supports the operational independence of individual institutions under the University of Tennessee System. It provides for institutional boards that advise on strategies, budgets, tuition and fees, as well as other significant operational aspects, to ensure the institutions meet the needs of their students and stakeholders effectively.

Persons with disabilities who wish to attend the meeting can request the necessary auxiliary aids or services needed to facilitate their attendance. The university urges these requests to be made no later than 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 9.

Keeping Up with Changes in Higher Education

The advisory board’s meetings are an integral part of the constant evolution of education and academia in the state of Tennessee. Through these meetings, the board aims to ensure that the academic performance and overall student experience at UTC remain top-tier, providing students with the highest quality education that equips them for their future careers and lives beyond the University.

Enhancing Communication

The meetings also serve as a platform for enhanced communication among faculty, students, and board members, with the mutual goal of contributing to the University’s growth as a leading institution for higher learning.


As a critical stakeholder meeting, the UTC Advisory Board meeting set to take place on May 14 will undoubtedly contribute to the University’s mission to empower its students and staff.
