A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

The boundaries covered by this STARS submission include the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT) Main Campus and Agricultural Campus (University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture). It excludes the UT Space Institute in Tullahoma, the UT Health Science Center in Memphis, UT satellite campuses such as Chattanooga and Martin, and the Institute of Agriculture satellite properties and buildings.


Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school Yes Yes
Medical school Yes Yes
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) Yes Yes
Satellite campus No No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Hospital Yes Yes

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

The Univeristy of Tennessee satellite campuses and institutes located in Chattanooga, Martin, Tullahoma and Memphis are excluded from this STARS report as they have different governing actors and Chancellors than the UT Knoxville campuses and are classified as
separate universities by the statewide higher education system.
