The UT Knoxville Office of Research & Engagement drives the campus research enterprise by providing technical expertise in proposal development, faculty development, sponsored programs administration and compliance requirements. The office assists with identifying external funding opportunities and administering internal funding programs. It is also responsible for managing TERA, the electronic research administration system.
An increasingly significant function of the office is encouraging and facilitating undergraduate students to become actively involved in research.
UT Knoxville faculty, staff, and students involved in research projects and other sponsored programs should use this site as the primary resource for information and assistance with grants and contracts, compliance, and other technical and administrative matters.
