Each of these events takes place next week, and all are part of the official launch for “Mocs in the City,” a new program designed to create a deeper connection between UTC and the Chattanooga community.
“It’s more than just an event, organization or catchy title. ‘Mocs in the City’ captures the story of UTC’s engagement with our community,” says David Steele, director of the university’s Office of Civic Engagement, which developed the initiative.
“Our hope is that, through ‘Mocs in the City,’ we can highlight and support existing community connections—and also identify and promote dynamic new ways of engaging with our city: service or research projects, local partnerships, outdoor activities or just getting off campus and engaging with our Chattanooga neighbors,” he says.
