UofM Board of Trustees: The First Two Years

April 4, 2019

Two years into the creation of our independent governing board and the shift to focus solely on the needs of our University, the UofM has experienced tremendous growth.

The introduction of new changes such as paid parental leave, visible progress on the pedestrian cable bridge and launching UMRF Research Park in the heart of the University District - a step toward our goal of achieving Carnegie I status - are not only impressive, but profoundly impactful. By having the lowest total tuition and fee increases in the State of Tennessee over the past five years, we remain committed to the goals of supporting student retention, connecting students to the campus and helping students through engagement and involvement.
