A Message from Dr. Joanne Romagni

Thanks for taking the time to investigate research at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. As the Vice Chancellor for Research (VCR), I oversee the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), the Office of Research Integrity (ORI), and the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor (RaCE).

With the help of these offices, our faculty, staff, and students have received both regional and national recognition for their research. You can find links to all of these offices on this page.

I hope that as you explore, you will be inspired to conduct your own research at UTC. To that end, please feel free to contact us if we can be of any assistance.
