UT to Host Event Focused on Community Engagement

More than 100 nonprofit and government agencies are registered for the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s first Nonprofit Day, to be held 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, in the Student Union ballroom.

Hosted by the Office of Community Engagement and Outreach, the event brings together UT faculty, staff, and students with community members and nonprofit and government agencies to collaborate on projects related to some of the most significant challenges in our region.

During the day, participants will attend speed breakout sessions—20-minute collaborative discussions among university and community members—that will address some of these issues. Representatives from UT departments will be in attendance and will facilitate discussions about community needs, student development, leadership and service, and enhanced public programs.
