2015-2016 Membership Application Form

Serving as a commissioner assists efforts to advance diversity and inclusion at UT and helps us on our journey to be a Top 25 public research institution. It is an honor and privilege to serve the university in this capacity.

Some of the efforts we championed in the past year included the inaugural Trailblazer Series and the Retention of African Americans in Knoxville Initiative. In the coming year, we will continue our work on the Trailblazer Series with the 2015-2016 speakers: Dr. Michael Nettles, Dr. Cynthia Fleming, and Dr. Anne Holt Blackburn. You can learn more about this exciting speaking series at http://trailblazer.utk.edu. Additionally, we aim to focus our efforts on strategic planning and policy engagement in the areas of retention, recruitment, research, and supplier diversity.

Please contact us at cfb@utk.edu if you would like to meet personally to discuss your membership on the Chancellor’s Commission for Blacks.
