The University of Tennessee System Administration Strategic Plan

The System Strategic Plan establishes a vision and direction for five years (2012-2017), with clearly defined goals to ensure good stewardship and purposeful use of resources. The 12-month planning process was transparent and received input from more than 400 faculty, staff, students, alumni, donors and community leaders. The strategic plan was approved by the Board of Trustees in June 2012.
