It’s time to begin submitting your events, activities, speakers and programs to be included in the Ready for the World Passport for the spring semester.

UT Knoxville faculty, staff and students are urged to use an electronic form to quickly and easily provide information about events related to the international and intercultural initiative. The form is found at

For several years, Ready for the World passports have helped promote campus activities and initiatives. The passport is a great personal planner that is distributed free to students, faculty and staff. It is often used as a recruitment tool and serves as a valuable record of the extensive programming that supports Ready for the World goals.

In order to produce the passport in time for spring semester distribution, information about your unit’s spring programs is needed by Wednesday, Dec. 15. These events might include, but are not limited to, films, lectures, exhibits, campus-wide activities, etc.

Remember that Ready for the World encompasses both international AND intercultural efforts. In addition to wide-ranging intercultural activities across campus, this year’s theme is civility. We are especially interested in any initiatives or activities that are planned that target this theme.

The passport provides free advertisement for programs, so please take advantage of this opportunity to broadcast information to the campus community and beyond.

Any questions about the passport should be addressed to Amy Blakely at or (865) 974-5034.
