A proposal to hold tuition increases to record lows for three consecutive years is unprecedented in the history of the University of Tennessee system and on its way to consideration by members of the UT Trustees Finance and Administration Committee.
The University of Tennessee System is seeking nominations and applications for the next vice president for academic affairs and student success.
Following the success of a two-year set of self-imposed budget restraints in 2015, University of Tennessee President Joe DiPietro informed the Board of Trustees Wednesday that the University is preparing another set of cost-saving goals.
“I believe that we are living in a transformational time,” Joe DiPietro said before a crowd of legislators, alumni and friends at the Nashville Public Library. “One day, future generations of Tennesseans will look back at where we stand now as the moment when our state took a tremendous leap forward.”
Trustees approved President Joe DiPietro’s recommendations that Beverly Davenport be appointed the next chancellor for UT Knoxville and that Tim Cross be appointed the next UT Institute of Agriculture chancellor.
