Celebrating partnerships that make a difference in our local, regional, and global communities.

Our successful 2015 Community Engagement Classification Application documented an alignment of our campus mission, resources, and practices that support community engagement.

As part of our data collection process, we compiled a series of exemplary community partnerships that best represent authentic, two-way relationships based on mutuality and reciprocity. We called upon colleges and divisions across UT Knoxville and the UT Institute of Agriculture to send us their nominations.

The result is our Top 50 Partnerships that Make a Difference. Throughout 2015 we highlighted each partnership’s unique contribution to our community.


We’ll be celebrating more great partnerships in 2016!
