Message from the Research Council Chair
The Research Council is a standing committee of the Faculty Senate intended to promote and support the research mission of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Our primary goal is to facilitate communication between those doing research, and those who guide, fund, and administer it. We act as an advisory body to the Vice Chancellor for Research and coordinate certain activities with the Office of Research and Engagement—in particular, faculty involvement in several ORE committees and the determination of recipients of various research awards.
Research and creative achievement is a vital component of the mission of our university and of the professional lives of our faculty members. From laboratory discoveries to art installations, from publications to performances, UT faculty members are deeply involved in a rich variety of research endeavors. The Research Council invites the input and participation of all those interested in advancing the research mission of the University. We look forward to hearing your suggestions.
