The University of Tennessee’s flagship campus in Knoxville boasts a vigorous research agenda engaging scholars and students with expertise in issues vital to local and global interests. UT is the hub of a vibrant research community that includes Oak Ridge National Laboratory and other University of Tennessee System campuses and institutes.

UT’s Office of Research and 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 Cayuse SP, 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 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.
