In conjunction with regular meetings of the Board of Trustees, an opportunity will be provided for students, employees, and members of the public to address the Board, or a committee of the Board, concerning items on the meeting agenda or other issues germane to the responsibilities of the Board.  The agenda for committee and Board meetings will be published on the Board website approximately one week prior to the meeting. The Board will not hear speakers on grievances or appeals specific to individual students or employees or on pending or threatened litigation involving the University or University officials.

The Board’s Standing Rule Governing Requests to Address the Board describes the procedures, terms, and conditions that govern requests to address the Board.


The next opportunity to address the Board of Trustees will be in connection with the upcoming Winter Meeting of the Board, scheduled for February 23-24, 2023. The meeting will be held at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus. To address the Board of Trustees, individuals must pre-register by completing a request form. Requests for the Winter Meeting of the Board will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Monday, February 20, 2023.
