Philanthropic support is critical to the college’s efforts. Our students, faculty, programs, and facilities all benefit from the investment of those who are committed to making our world a better place through the study and application of the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences.

Our mission is to match donors’ interests with the short- and long-term funding priorities of the college to enhance its overall excellence in teaching, research, and service. There are several ways you can have a significant impact on the college through personal engagement and philanthropic investment.

As UT positions itself among the nation’s elite universities, we are working to set ourselves apart and create a student experience that reaches beyond the ordinary. Our goal to become a preeminent public research institution is an ambitious challenge, but we are eager to fulfill our destiny to compete with the best.

Your role in helping us shape the next generation of leaders is crucial to the state and nation. We ask you to consider joining the journey by making your leadership gift today. It’s a priceless gift to the college, the next generation of Vols, and the world.
