Universities in Knoxville
At Johnson University our vision is to bring glory to God and hope to the world by preparing promising students for excellence in Christian ministry through an affordable, community-oriented, Christ-centered education.
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.
