  • Joann Hartmann Assistant director of the CIE is the most helpful person. I had some unfortunate things happen to me during my study at UT as an international student. I can't SHOUT OUT loud enough that I would not have made it through that time without the help from Joann Hartmann. She was not only on top of handling my lawful stay during sickness and cancer, but also being there for me and for many - many other international students. And honestly, I can not say this about all CIE employees. She is just the best. Thanks Joann Hartmann without you I could not have made it.

      Dr. Catherine Higgs
  • From Bijan Keyhani on February 20 at 11:38 AM
  • My Hist 499 with Dr. Catherine Higgs was one of the most beneficial courses i have taken during my tenure at the University of Tennessee. The benefits i received from this course were much more than just the skills we learned or exposure to new chapter of history. This course held such additional value because of the way in which Dr. Higgs chose to conduct the class, and also because of the high expectations she had of the students in it. Since Dr. Higgs chose to treat her students as professionals, i do believe that they tried to rise to that standard of work. Now whether or not they were actually able to attain that standard is unimportant.What is important is that Dr. Higgs got her students to try and push the boundaries of their abilities in order to achieve a goal, which is ultimately the most important quality for any educator.

If you have had Dr. Liulevicius then you may remember how he enjoys to end lectures on an "ominous" note, which i must say is a terrific way to create suspense and leave your audience( in this case his classroom) on the edge of their seat. Thank you, Dr. Liulevicius for teaching such wonderfully interesting courses and i hope that you continue enlightening young scholars for years to come.

  • To be honest, I went into GEOL101 thinking I would hate it, but to my surprise it wound up being one of my favorite classes for that semester. Professor Dean played a huge part in that. I loved the energy and goofy sense of humor he brought to his lectures, and that he was always willing to stop and explicate on something I felt I didn't catch or fully grasp the first time. I actually found myself being interested in the material and looking forward to what we would learn about next. Even with just this introductory-level course I feel like I can grasp with a greater level of depth things I hear about in the news such as natural disasters, water supply issues, oil drilling and fracking, and climate change. Most of all I am appreciative of how kind and encouraging Professor Dean was to me personally. The pun is completely intended when I say that he rocks.

  • From Anonymous on February 20 at 8:10 AM
  • Everyone I've talked to about having Professor Campbell has echoed my feelings about her; this most often takes the form of sputtering incoherently while trying to articulate how amazing a teacher she is. She has made me so enthusiastic to learn about the history of art and completely changed the way I approach writing. I never thought formal analysis of artwork could be such an engaging, liberating, almost empowering exercise until applying her advice to it. She is thoughtful and generous with her time, and you get the sense that she deeply cares about her students' success and well-being. I'm pretty sure my parents are super tired of hearing me rhapsodize about her at this point.

She teaches in an engaging and intense, yet approachable style that allows for students to explore new areas of learning while not being completely overwhelmed. For learning to be effective, a teacher needs to bring the material to life. They must harness the real world relevance of the lessons and expose the students to it so that they are able to use it for the rest of their lives in a meaningful way. Otherwise, we are all reciting textbook information that will be retained for a mere week. Dr. Jacobs is doing a great job of this and as a student that spends a lot of time and money to be at this University, I appreciate that.

I was nervous at the outset, but right from day one Professor Neff had me hooked. I was always excited for what we would cover in the next class meeting. Also, I had always thought that architecture was something boring that I would never be able to look at and appreciate as art, but learning about Gothic cathedrals actually made me excited to learn more about architecture! This was my first Art History class at UT, and I think if I hadn't had such a good experience I might not have pursued the Major further. Thank you!

  • Dr. McConville is the greatest theory teacher of all time. Not only does he really care about his students but he tries his hardest to help us to succeed. I know a bunch of my class mates and I were not looking forward to theory 4 because of previous experiences but McConville helps us to understand and all his analogies are on point.
