COLLEGE NEWS

UT Knoxville has more than 629 faculty, staff, and students who are active-duty U.S. military, veterans, reservists, or members of the National Guard. Among the campus veterans is JEM Meeman Professor Jim Stovall who served in the U. S. Navy from 1971 to 1974. We thank and honor Jim and all UT veterans and active-duty faculty, staff, and students for their service to our country on Veteran’s Day 2011!
