Share Your Budget Ideas, Learn How You Can Help

Switch Your ThinkingAs we face the challenging economic realities that stand before the state and the nation, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, remains committed to fulfilling its core mission of teaching, research and service.

Looking toward the next budget, set to begin July 1, 2009, the campus is relying on all members of the campus community to provide suggestions about how the campus can operate in the most efficient manner possible.

Suggestions will be taken into account as part of the ongoing discussions about how to serve students and the state at a time when our resources are reduced. Whether your thoughts are related to energy savings, reducing duplication of effort or streamlining a process or service, we want to hear from you.

You can send your feedback through the form located at this Web site: http://chancellor.utk.edu/budget/feedback/.

It is important to note that even the smallest actions of our faculty, staff and students do make a difference in the face of this daunting challenge. Members of the campus community can learn more about some of the steps you can take now through our Switch Your Thinking campaign. You can learn more here: http://www.utk.edu/features/switch/.

When you visit the site, you’ll find a list of tips and suggestions, as well as links to stories about people across campus who are making a difference and some of the projects taking place to ensure that UT Knoxville operates as efficiently as possible.
