The UT Advocacy program, part of the Office of Government Relations and Advocacy, hopes to empower UT employees, supporters and stakeholders by providing updates on legislative issues affecting the University and offering opportunities for training.
“Being an advocate for the University starts with being informed,” Advocacy Director Carey Smith says. “Our website, advocacy.tennessee.edu, and Twitter feed, @UT Advocator are great sources of information because they are tailored to issues that specifically affect the University.”
There are opportunities to speak out in support of the University as well. “For employees who are very interested, we also offer training programs that teach you how to advocate for the University publicly, through the proper channels,” Smith says.
