As UT faculty and students wrap up this year’s work with the City of Cleveland, Tennessee, planning is already underway for next year’s Smart Communities Initiative partnership with the Southeast Tennessee Development District.
In preparation for next year, UT faculty interested in participating in next year’s SCI should plan to attend an informational meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, April 9, in the West Wing of the Haslam Business Building. Those attending will get an overview of the SCI program and the Cleveland projects, as well as an introduction to the 2015–16 SCI plan and the thirty-two service-learning projects that have been proposed.
SCI will be a key component of Experience Learning—UT’s new Quality Enhancement Plan, part of its reaccreditation process for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
