Talking with UT faculty at Dinner & Dialogue and College for a Day

Aeron Glover addresses Dinner & Dialogue participants

In the two most recent Dinner and Dialogue events, limited audiences of 12 alumni and friends enjoyed dinner at the Orangery in Knoxville while engaging in fascinating conversations with UT faculty.

Yilu Liu, a Tennessee Governor’s Chair in the College of Engineering, led a conversation about the U.S. power grid in January. In March, UT students Aeron Glover and Kaliv Parker led a discussion on their success in a national business plan competition that led to the creation of their own business.  Glover and Parker were mentored by Lee Miller, who also facilitated the conversation.

College for a Day in February welcomed 80 alumni and friends to campus to learn about lawn and garden care from three UT faculty experts. Sue Hamilton discussed “How to Create a Blended, Well-mixed Garden,” Tom Samples and Jim Brosnan discussed “Improving Your Lawn this Year,” and Andy Pulte discussed “Backgrounds and Borders.”

College for a Day programs offer stimulating presentations by UT faculty during a half-day on campus.
