As Tennessee’s land-grant institution, the University of Tennessee fulfills a mission to educate, discover and connect across our state and beyond. The University has a long history of partnering with public and private industry to conduct research that expands scientific knowledge, grows economic development, adds to quality of life and benefits the people of Tennessee.
Our University has helped Tennessee become a world leader in renewable energy, and we view the Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus as a catalyst to continue to move the University, the state and nation forward in many areas of research including materials science, high-speed computing, agriculture and biotechnology.
Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus, a partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, provides private industry with access to excellent faculty and researchers and world-class resources and a location with a dynamic workforce.
I look forward to welcoming you to Tennessee and Knoxville.
