Baker School of Public Policy and Public Affairs Launches New Research Centers

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Baker School of Public Policy and Public Affairs hosted a policy research symposium and ribbon cutting to launch two new research centers – the Center for National Security and Foreign Affairs and the Center for Energy, Transportation, and Environmental Policy.
The two centers were formerly known as the Global Security Program and the Energy and Environment Program, respectively, at the school’s predecessor, the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy.
The Baker School is hiring multiple faculty to support its research and teaching missions, with the goal of training undergraduate and graduate students to conduct multidisciplinary policy research in these areas of expertise.
Fellows and affiliates working with the two centers represent 12 colleges and more than 20 departments at UT as well as industry, every level of government and the nonprofit sector.
