Administration Budget Amendment Positive for UT’s Non-Formula Units

The Governor’s budget amendment was released this morning and will have a positive impact on UT’s outreach mission.  The amendment provides The University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service and The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture with a 2.5 percent increase in recurring operational dollars.  These units were not included in the Governor’s original budget proposal.

Non-formula unit funding is incredibly important to UT, and we appreciate the Administration’s efforts to include these increases in the Amendment.  Every day, these Institutes deliver needed and in-demand services to Tennesseans across the state.
