Outreach & Globalization

Our land-grant mission establishes the expectation that the university will address societal, economic, and environmental issues that affect the lives and well being of citizens of Tennessee and beyond. Engagement of the university with the state’s citizens, communities, counties, and regions occurs through a variety of outreach programs and is expected of each academic unit of the university.

Strategic Focus Areas

The Strategic Focus Area of Outreach & Globalization includes the following measures:


  • Patients or clients served through our units (thousands) 
  • Annual expenditures for outreach (millions) 


  • Students with UT-sponsored international study experience 
  • Number of active, formal international collaboration agreements 

In the 21st century, it is essential for our students and citizens to understand how our economy and quality of life are influenced by the global economy and marketplace.
