Plant Sciences

The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture is a special place.

We continue to honor the land-grant mission of research, teaching and outreach that changes lives. We are very fortunate to have had a good foundation laid by those who came before us. And, because of our loyal alumni and friends, the word is spreading across Tennessee and beyond.

The UTIA's Department of Plant Sciences is grateful to have been a part of your educational experience. Your ongoing support is essential for our continued success. Gifts of all sizes have a significant impact on our students. Here are just a few examples of what alumni support can do:

  • A $100 gift provides experiential learning support for one undergraduate student's research project
  • A $500 gift funds a scholarship for student participation in an international course or internship
  • A $1,000 gift provides travel support for two graduate students to present their work at a professional meeting
Thanks to our donors, this is a time of unparalleled success for the Institute. With your support, we can achieve continued greatness.

Yours truly,
Dr. Scott Senseman
Department Head
