NCAA notes Mocs success in the classroom

As the Chattanooga Mocs continue to “build a program that is successful the classroom, in competition, and in the community,” the NCAA released the Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores for all sports.  The NCAA introduced the APR a decade ago to measure the number of student athletes who stay in school and earn good grades.  A total of 12 programs at UTC had perfect single-year APR scores while all 17 were well above the NCAA minimum.

New employees, changes in retirement

If you work with new employees and you missed the UT System presentation about changes in state retirement plans for faculty and staff hired after July 1, 2014, an online resource is available at UT System Human Resources.  For current employees: the retirement plan you’re enrolled in and your associated benefits will not change.



Congratulations to the UTC Department of Communication! The department received a vote to fully reaccredit the program by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC). The department is one of only 112 programs in the country and Puerto Rico that are accredited by ACEJMC. During the voting, the council cited as strengths of the program an “outstanding department head, passionate students, and dedicated faculty.”

Engaging students, Inspiring change, and Enriching community.
