The University of Tennessee System is on a mission to paint the state orange with its “Everywhere You Look, UT” campaign. Beginning today, Covington in Tipton County will become home to UT’s 19th mural and the highest one to date as it stands 125 feet above the town.
Gov. Bill Lee, accompanied by local and state officials, joined together to officially celebrate UT Southern, the newest campus to join the UT System in more than 50 years.
The UTHSC chancellor serves as a member of the UT System leadership team, reporting directly to the University president, and as chief academic and administrative officer of the Health Science Center campus.
In its first full, in-person meeting since February 2020, the Board of Trustees approved the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 operating budget, as well as modest tuition increases at two campuses.
After months of conversations, meetings, measures and proceedings, the UT Board of Trustees voted to acquire the assets of Martin Methodist College and establish a new UT campus in Pulaski, Tennessee: UT Southern.
