The Dean’s Office

Message from the Interim Dean

Welcome to the Herbert College of Agriculture!

As interim dean of the College, I am extremely proud of the rich tradition of providing practical, experiential-based education that has been our hallmark since our original agricultural courses of study were offered back in 1871.

Herbert boasts a vibrant student body of 1,800 plus undergraduate and graduate students, dedicated staff and nationally renowned faculty who are committed to fulfilling the twenty-first century land-grant mission to increase the well-being of our nation and our planet. The College is fortunate to be part of the UT Institute of Agriculture (UTIA) which exists as part of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The UTIA provides Real. Life. Solutions. to some of society’s most pressing issues.

The Herbert College of Agriculture provides quality education offering not only engaging academic experiences within the classroom, but also opportunities to obtain international exposure, internships, experiential research, and service learning in seven academic departments and one school. The College offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees and provides hands-on learning in a family atmosphere aimed at developing future leaders to meet the many challenges facing our natural resources and agricultural enterprises.

Knoxville is nestled in the valley of the Great Smoky Mountains, only an hour from some of the best views and hiking in the South, and there is always something to do downtown or across the region. Knoxville has been identified as one of the Top 100 places to live and one of the best places for businesses and careers.

It is an exciting time to be part of the Volunteer community and I invite all of you who are interested to explore our College further either online or through a campus visit.

Make Herbert your home.

Go Vols!
