Your support of our journey makes a great impact. Investing in the state’s flagship campus increases the quality and value of our education, expands our contribution to economic growth and development, and brings Big Ideas to life for the benefit of all Tennesseans.
The University of Tennessee’s journey is one with an ambitious goal—to join the ranks of the nation’s preeminent public research universities. Since embarking in 2012, we have made great strides in improving our students’ experiences while making new discoveries and engaging with our local and global communities.
We, the Haslam College of Business, are a community that serves the citizens and businesses of Tennessee and beyond. We support learning through the creation and sharing of knowledge. We succeed when our work, and that of our students and partners, generates nationally and internationally recognized outcomes that improve the world.
In order to be numbered among nationally recognized, top-notch business schools, we must attract and retain a nationally recognized faculty and be a destination for high-quality students from across the globe. Nationally recognized faculty, top-quality academic programs, global co-curricular opportunities, and first-rate career management services attract the highest quality students.
Our goal is to grow a nationally regarded faculty through a more stimulating, supportive, intellectual environment, to offer enhanced graduate and undergraduate fellowships and scholarships, to increase the scope of educational opportunities, to create additional Centers of Excellence, and to expand our reach and effectiveness through technology-enabled learning communities.
"Private support has impacted me by keeping me motivated. I know there are people on campus and alumni who care about my success, my professional development, my goals and my aspirations."
“Without private support, my education wouldn’t have been possible. I’ve had a lot of opportunities at through Haslam thanks to private donors: studying abroad, interning abroad and being a Global Leadership Scholar.”
