Some TLC for UTCVM

Your contributions can help us achieve our vision of even better facilities for our students and faculty! The proposed Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine will enhance our educational and interactive environment and support the professional and personal growth of all students. The centerpiece of the TLC is a Simulation Center, an innovative teaching tool that offers students the opportunity to become proficient and confident in performing technical skills before and during their clinical experiences.

The TLC addition will be located between the veterinary building (on the Pendergrass Library side) and Joe Johnson Drive where a parking lot currently exists.  In addition to the Simulation Center, the new space will include a large lecture room, study areas, and counseling suites, plus brand-new areas to house our academic affairs offices and social work program.  The construction proposal has been submitted for university and legislative approval. The project is estimated to cost $9 million. Partial funding through generous donations has been secured.  Please contact Advancement Assistant, at 865-974-4379 if you would like to support this initiative or have questions regarding project development.
