The University of Tennessee at Martin is listed for the sixth consecutive year among America’s 100 Best College Buys, a listing compiled by Institutional Research & Evaluation, Inc.
“High quality and low cost are a rare combination in any product, yet for the sixth consecutive year, we are proud to recognize the University of Tennessee at Martin as being among those very few educational institutions that consistently provide both,” said Lewis Lindsey Jr., IRE president.
Dr. Tom Rakes, UT Martin chancellor, said that providing students high value and quality for their educational investment remains a priority. “These are challenging economic times for individuals and families, and we strive to give students exceptional value for their education dollars,” he said. “We are honored to be recognized in this way and will continue to serve the region by providing the highest academic quality to those who choose UT Martin.”
The listing in America’s 100 Best College Buys is UT Martin’s third major recognition for the current academic year.
