Pellissippi Partnerships
The University of Tennessee Humanities Center and Pellissippi State Community College are seeking to strengthen academic cooperation through constructing stronger bonds between their respective humanities facilities.  Additionally, an effort is underway to create a transfer course which will be taught by UT faculty.  The design and content of the course is intended to provide Pellissippi State students a better grasp of the sorts of classes they will discover on entering the university.  This course is presently in the design phase, but it is our hope to have a pilot course taught in the fall semester of 2015.

The Confucius Institute
The University of Tennessee Humanities Center and the Confucius Institute have joined forces to seek support from the Confucius Center's Beijing headquarters to partner in a new series of distinguished lectures in Chinese culture.  It is hoped that this program will begin in the fall semester of 2015.  More information on this exciting new series of distinguished lectures will be provided in our next issue of Paideia.
