The University has implemented a comprehensive plan to recruit and retain students who will flourish in the high-quality undergraduate and graduate education programs offered. Recruitment efforts include attracting students from West Tennessee and beyond to encounter the UT Martin experience, including the vision of an engaged living-learning environment. Construction and renovations are underway to improve the existing facilities.
