A visit to the university’s Special Collections and McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture can be like a trip around the world and back in time. For faculty and students, these two collections are virtual treasure troves of teaching and learning. Take a look at some of the objects of interest—global and local—to be found on campus.

From a Class of ’64 “American Civilization” major, I have to say that virtually every visit to UTK’s website reveals more amazing new programs in progress on campus. Now an attorney, I think I could revert to student again easily.
