Imagine Tennessee

In 2018, UT met with East Tennessee civic and community leaders to identify critical issues affecting citizens and how to leverage university resources for their benefit. Imagine Tennessee is a pilot umbrella initiative spotlighting UT’s efforts to address these real-world issues.

Imagine Tennessee connects, equips, and elevates community-university partnerships in four key areas:


Family, Health & Wellness

Community & Economic Development

Sustainability & Environmental Resiliency
