Did you know that this summer will mark the 50th anniversary of the merger that created the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga? On July 1, 1969 the Agreement of Merger and Plan of Transition uniting the University of Chattanooga and the University of Tennessee went into effect and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga was born.

Learn more about this merger, UTC’s predecessor institutions, and the changing campus landscape over the years by visiting the Roth Grand Reading Room located on the 4th Floor of the UTC Library. There you will find an exhibition of materials from Special Collections that document UTC’s growth and development into the vibrant and engaged metropolitan university it is today.
