As we begin a new year, I am reflecting on the great progress we have made as a state toward the Drive to 55 and the University of Tennessee System’s contribution toward it.

In order to make this the greatest decade in UT history, we must continually seek ways to honor our land-grant mission. We don’t want to measure ourselves by who we exclude; we want to measure ourselves by who we include.
I am convinced, more so than ever, that there is no better time in the University of Tennessee’s history than now. As I look back on the last year, I am encouraged by all that has been accomplished and energized about what’s to come.
I am thrilled that we are able to offer this scholarship to our current undergraduate students who attend our UT campuses across the state. We are committed to helping our students achieve their dream of obtaining an undergraduate degree, and the UT Promise scholarship helps alleviate some of the financial burden many future and current college students face.
I have been blessed to be surrounded by a passionate, intelligent, and bold team throughout the state and believe we have made some incredible progress during our first six months together.
