Cherokee Farm draws criticism
Administrators at UT are calling a potential research-intensive campus on the Cherokee Farm "a campus for the 21st century," but Knoxville faculty members remain opposed to that futuristic vision.
The Cherokee Farm is being developed as a state-of-the-art, technology-oriented research site committed to affirming the university's mission to enhance economic development in the state, according to the Cherokee Farm Web site. Although management of the site was originally designated for the Knoxville campus in the 2001 Master Plan, a committee of system administrators and Knoxville faculty has been created to oversee the development of that site.
"Any university has to look for the future, where we are going," said David Millhorn, executive vice president and chair of the Cherokee Farm Planning Committee. "We look at Cherokee as an exceptional opportunity to develop a world-class research facility." The site hopes to boost UT into the ranks of the nation's leading research universities, concentrating in computational sciences and nanotechnology.
