Convocation, UTC Birthday Party, and Founders Day Celebration Gala
UTC was founded in 1886 as then-private Chattanooga University, which was renamed in 1889 as U.S. Grant University. In 1907, the university changed its name to University of Chattanooga. In 1969, the university merged with Zion College/Chattanooga City College to form The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga as part of the University of Tennessee system.
As the campus looks forward to a bright future, plans are underway to honor its rich past with an 18-month 125th anniversary celebration. From January 2011 thru May 2012, UTC will commemorate its quasquicentennial with events for students, faculty and staff, alumni and the community..
