Research. Scholarship. Creative Activity. To be recognized as a top-tier research institution, it is vital that UT Knoxville communicates locally, nationally and internationally about the incredible array of research undertaken here.
That’s why I am proud to introduce Quest, the new research communication initiative at UT Knoxville. Under the leadership of the Office of Research and the Office of Communications and Marketing, we believe that Quest will open the eyes of faculty and staff as well as external audiences to the vitality of our campus’ multidisciplinary research enterprise.
Quest unifies communication initiatives from the Office of Research. It gives faculty and staff a centralized source of information about new grant solicitations and awards. It shows the tremendous breadth of inquiry across our campus.
The Office of Research will continue to generate regular newsletters, but their updated design will make it clear that they are part of Quest.
Quest will appear in online and print formats to share the story of UT Knoxville research with the world. The site will be updated regularly with news and features on UT Knoxville research, and the magazine, to be printed every four months, will provide compelling stories about campus-wide research activities.
I invite you to explore Quest at http://quest.utk.edu. Look through the site, bookmark it and make it a regular stop. I hope you’ll join me in relying on Quest as the place to learn more as we establish UT Knoxville’s recognition in the exciting world of research.
