What does being a Volunteer mean to you? How has UT empowered you to make a difference in a way you might not have imagined elsewhere?

“Being a Volunteer means providing legal services to those in greatest need who cannot afford legal representation. UT has provided me with the necessary resources to conduct expungement research and launch an expungement clinic that has trained dozens of students and helped hundreds of clients. As a land-grant institution, UT’s mission supports work that builds lasting partnerships with community organizations like the Knoxville Area Urban League and work in rural East Tennessee.”
