The University of Tennessee System ignited action across Tennessee around the opioid epidemic through the first Summit for Opioid Addiction and Response (SOAR).
The University of Tennessee System has partnered with the All4Knox Initiative, East Tennessee State University, One Tennessee Health and the Tennessee Judicial Opioid Initiative to host the Summit for Opioid Addiction and Response (SOAR) on Aug. 1 and 2, in Knoxville.
The center is the result of collaboration between the Tennessee Departments of Transportation and Tourist Development, as well as the University of Tennessee, which oversees the 5-megawatt, 25-acre West Tennessee Solar Farm surrounding the building.
For 50 years, the University of Tennessee — made up of many parts — has moved with one voice for the good of its students, faculty, alumni and state. On July 1, 1968, the parts became one as a system.
In this role, Fulmer will serve as an ambassador for the University system, support intercollegiate athletic programs in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Martin, and work with UT government relations and alumni affairs leadership to advocate for UT statewide.
