Message from the Provost
I am delighted to welcome you to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s website. As Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, I serve as the chief academic officer for UTC and I am responsible for all academic programs at the university.
UTC serves its students and the community through academic programs available in a wide range of undergraduate and graduate majors. The university enhances the educational experiences of its students through learning opportunities outside the classroom. The outstanding UTC faculty forms a creative and prestigious community of scholars. Students are afforded the opportunity to work side-by-side with our faculty and community partners to obtain more than a degree. In addition to the degree, our students participate in solving real-world problems for businesses, industries, health care and education that positively impacts their employability.
UTC is truly an exceptional place to receive a premier yet affordable education, and Chattanooga offers an exciting setting to pursue your educational and career interests.
All of us in the Division of Academic Affairs are here to assist you to reach your educational goals. I encourage you to take full advantage of the opportunities available here at UTC.
