The College of Education, Health, and Human Services is proud to share that Dorian McCoy, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, will serve as the first faculty fellow for the newly formed Imagine Tennessee Program. The program, within the Office of Community Engagement and Outreach, will connect and equip partnerships between the university and community to address pressing state challenges and support collaborations that link UT’s faculty and student-engaged scholarship with community assets and needs through curricular, co-curricular, and faculty-only programs. It is open to all University of Tennessee, Knoxville faculty, staff, or students, or community organizations such as nonprofit or government agencies. Within the program, McCoy will bring a faculty perspective to the strategic planning as a facilitator and catalyst for new collaborations between university and community partners. Kelly Ellenburg will serve as program manager.
