CLA Annual Report

The CLA makes critical advances toward the future competitiveness of technological industries and institutions through education, innovation, and service.

Our research mission is growing. The funding provided by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, coupled with support from the University of Tennessee, has provided valuable leverage for sponsored research, and CLA research awards continue to increase. 

CLA remains active in areas of outreach and business development. Productivity among CLA faculty has been outstanding during the last five-year period. During fiscal years 2016 through 2020, CLA faculty published 135 peer-reviewed articles, 8 books, and presented at 102 regional, national, and international meetings.
