Sponsorship Opportunities

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) is planning its 3rd annual RESEARCH Dialogues conference, celebrating Scholarship, Engagement, the Arts, Research, Creativity, and Humanities on campus.  The event itself will take place April 3-4, 2018.  The ReSEARCH Dialogues will include an Undergraduate Research Symposium (April 3rd), a Graduate Research Symposium (April 4th), and a Faculty Showcase (April 4th). 

Participants showcase their scholarly and creative accomplishments through poster and display presentations, podium presentations, panel discussions, and performances in addition to three pitch-style competitions including the Undergraduate Lightning Round, the 3-Minute Thesis competition for graduate students, and elevator speech competition for faculty. 

We are seeking sponsorships from community partners who value research, scholarship, and creative activity and would like to invite you to consider supporting the conference.  The event will bring together more than 500 presenters and numerous visitors representing students, faculty, and staff from every campus division and college.  The ReSEARCH Dialogues conference is one of the few events on campus that attracts such large and diverse participation of students, staff, and faculty.  It is a unique opportunity to connect with our students as potential interns or employees as well as a chance to explore partnerships with faculty and staff from a range of disciplines.   

We hope you will partner with us to support scholarly and creative activities at UTC.  The attached information outlines a variety of sponsorship levels and opportunities to participate.  A sponsorship includes recognition on all signage and promotional materials.  We would love the chance to discuss this further if you have any questions or would like to learn more about research and scholarly activity at UTC.
