The Volunteer Experience

A quality education happens both in and outside the classroom. At the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, we are reimagining how our students learn as we strive to provide transformative experiential opportunities for every student, regardless of when or how they engage academically.

Central to UT’s Strategic Vision, the Volunteer Experience is a comprehensive, university-wide approach to promoting student well-being and career readiness in all aspects of a scholar’s experience. It is both a culture and culminating experience designed to help students thrive. This initiative includes three interrelated strategic investments:

  • Targeted academic initiatives
  • Deep student engagement
  • Transformational student experiences

The Goal

With the goal of increasing undergraduate student persistence and graduation rates, closing achievement gaps, and bolstering post-graduation career outcomes, the Volunteer Experience will provide students with the opportunity to enhance their well-being while also preparing for a global workforce.
