The master plan provides a long-range vision for the campuses of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the Institute of Agriculture. A key element to moving UT Knoxville from a Top 50 public research university to the ranks of the Top 25 involves having the resources to improve and supplement our campus facilities to support first-rate academic and research programs, along with student housing and services.
The UT Board of Trustees approved the draft at its annual meeting in June. Once the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and the State Building Commission ratify the plan, the university will use it as a roadmap to identify short- and long-term opportunities and define phases for development of facilities and the campus as a whole.
The 2011 draft plan is an update to previous versions drafted in 1994 and updated in 2001. A series of meetings were held throughout the spring to gather feedback about the plan from faculty, staff, students, community members, and other stakeholders.
