Call for Nominations for Chancellor’s Ready for the World Citation

In 2005, UT submitted a Quality Enhancement Plan for SACS reaccreditation that has since become known on campus as the Ready for the World program. Each year the Office of the Chancellor recognizes a faculty member who has worked in exceptional ways — for instance, through curriculum infusion projects or extended study abroad programs — to enhance intercultural and international awareness among undergraduates.
