Join the Dean’s Circle

Donors who give $1000 or more annually to the College Fund and/or to a Department Enrichment Fund are invited to become members of the Dean’s Circle.

Members of the Dean’s Circle join a group of generous friends and alumni that understand the importance of supporting the College’s most urgent needs.

As thanks for their leadership in giving annually to the College, they receive the following benefits:

  • A Dean’s Circle lapel pin
  • An invitation to sit, with a guest, in the Dean’s outside seats at a home football game (one of four choices per season)
  • An invitation to a regional College of Arts & Sciences event in your area and to the annual Dean’s Circle campus event
  • Recognition in the College Fund for Arts & Sciences Honor Roll
  • Access to a campus liaison who can answer questions and provide important updates about the College of Arts & Sciences and UTK.

How it works

Here are three giving options that will make you a member of the Dean’s Circle:

  • A gift of $1,000 to the College Fund for Arts & Sciences
  • A gift of $1,000 to a Department Enrichment Fund
  • A gift of $500 to the College Fund and $500 to a Department Enrichment Fund
