RCR instruction is targeted towards individuals preparing for careers as research scientists and those seeking to fulfill the professional development requirements pertaining to RCR mandated by federal funding agencies.
Representatives from across the campus research community will present on: collaborative research, culturally diverse mentoring, data management plans and best practices, acquiring and maintaining IRB approval at UT, and publication issues and best practices. Separate breakout sessions will be available for those who work with human subjects or conduct laboratory research, as well as an interactive discussion of real life research misconduct scenarios.
Lunch will be provided and ORE will distribute certificates of completion for use on CVs and application documents.

The Graduate Student Professional Development Committee is made up of representatives from the Graduate School, Teaching & Learning Center, Center for Career Development, University Libraries, and Office of Research & Engagement. Spearheaded by the Center for Career Development, this committee is conducting an assessment to determine the professional development needs of graduate students and the areas in which they are receiving support currently.
The assessment is open to all current University of Tennessee graduate students, and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. The results will be used to create and implement future programming and services geared towards graduate student professional development.

We all have to do more to prevent sexual misconduct and relationship violence. Please know how much we care about your safety and well-being. If you need help there are several resources. For example, the Counseling Center at the University of Tennessee is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services and provides individual and group counseling and psychotherapy. UT’s VolAware site is a good source to a variety of services involving suicide prevention, mental health, substance abuse, distressed students, personal safety, sexual assault, and wellness. If you feel you need help, please ask someone! You can always call 974-HELP (4357).
Please also note, the university has adopted a policy that prohibits sexual misconduct and relationship violence, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. The policy applies to students, faculty, and staff. View the policy (pdf).
- describes prohibited conduct for students, faculty, and staff;
- explains multiple options for reporting sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking to the university;
- identifies employees, called “Mandatory Reporters,” who are obligated to report information they receive concerning prohibited conduct to the university;
- describes the procedures the university will follow for promptly, thoroughly, and equitably investigating and resolving reports of sexual misconduct and relationship violence in order to eliminate the misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects on a complainant or the university community;
- identifies resources for complainants;
- describes the university’s prevention and awareness programs relating to sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking; and
- implements the requirements of Title IX and the Clery Act (including amendments to the Clery Act made by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act).
This policy is effective August 22, 2017. It reflects changes from the policy in place from 2015–17. An interim policy was in effect during the 2014–15 academic year.
The university encourages anyone who has feedback or questions concerning the policy to contact the Title IX coordinator, Ashley Blamey, at 865-974-9600, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
