Division of Student Life

Opportunities to Give to Student Life

Donors to Student Life are individuals who share a common bond in their belief and passion for the value of higher education and the important role of opportunities for student involvement at the University of Tennessee.

Student Life is the heart of UT’s campus, and avenues for involvement are vital to the success of each and every student’s experience at the University of Tennessee. No student graduates from the Division of Student Life, but no one ever graduates without the student experience that is outside of the classroom.

While the Division of Student Life enhances the student experience, we also constantly adapt our offerings to students in order to best serve the campus population. Student Life is where students live; it is university housing. Student Life is where students serve; it is student government and TeamVols. And Student Life is where students learn, grow, and develop; it is all of the extracurricular opportunities and programs from intramural sports to cultural events. Student Life encompasses the ways in which students spend 85% of their collegiate experience—outside the classroom.

Today’s students expect diverse options for involvement, and they look for areas to give back. Because of Student Life’s commitment to excellence, the campus and community benefit from involved and invested students who develop into true volunteers. We need continued private support to guarantee that all UT students enter the workforce with a firm foundation in leadership and involvement, and with the abilities needed to remain lifelong volunteers.

Today we reach out to you as an individual who has a passion for our university and ask you to consider supporting one of the many Student Life funds listed on this site. In doing so, your gift will not only make a positive impact on our campus, but it will set an example for other friends and alumni of the University. If your interest is more specific, contact the Development Office to discuss how your gift can make an impact on the area of your interest.
