Universities in Knoxville
At Johnson University our mission is to educate students for Christian ministries and other strategic vocations framed by the Great Commission in order to extend the kingdom of God among all nations.
Founded in 1794, UT is big on tradition, and we are proud of our humble beginnings as the first public university chartered west of the Appalachian Divide. We embody excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, creative activity, outreach, and engagement. We are improving undergraduate and graduate education, research, support for faculty and staff, our campus infrastructure, and our resources.
