The Styles L. Hutchins Fellowship was created as a collaboration between UTC, the mayor’s office, the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce and the Urban League of Greater Chattanooga. Its goal is to give black graduates more reasons to stay in Chattanooga.
A task force appointed to address chronic veterans’ homelessness in Chattanooga gathered recently for the first time on the UTC campus. Veterans, including students from UTC, community leaders, service providers, and city employees will work together to address housing and find funding for homeless veterans in our city. The task force meeting was held June 6.
Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke and City Council Chairman Chip Henderson came to campus to meet with members of the UTC Student Veterans Organization and UTC faculty members who served in the military to discuss the issues veterans face during service and upon their return home.
