September 19th – 20th, 2023
UT Conference Center Building
The concept of the “best man” has its origin in medieval Germany when the best man was identified as that trusted individual who had your back, supported you, who would go to battle with you and for you. The BEST Man Forum is designed to connect and meet the needs of the UT men that serve our campuses and institutes. The forum serves as a catalyst to unite UT men system-wide, to learn, network, and contribute to embodiment of the Be One UT Values in performance, behaviors, and relationships.
Statewide, exempt employees and/or those who have supervisory responsibilities are welcome to register for this two-day conference to be held in Knoxville at the UT Conference Center Bldg. The forum will consist of the following: three facilitated small-group sessions focused on Building Essential Skills Together; an Executive Leadership Panel; an extensive networking, games night, and vendor session. Come find your UT BEST Man at the BEST Man Forum!
