Expanding Fletcher Hall will….

With the number of business graduates up 21% over the past 10 years, majors in Accounting, Finance, Management and Marketing are among the largest majors at UTC and all identified as high-demand growth areas. With a recently launched Data Analytics major that has grown 500% in the past four years, the college has also created or expanded in-demand master’s programs along with non-degree programs and certificates. 

The expansion of Fletcher Hall will allow the college to continue expanding enrollment and develop state-of-the-art facilities in these critical areas to meet regional workforce needs.

Innovative classrooms with robust technology platforms that properly support face-to-face, hybrid and online learning are critical to recruiting and retaining the best students while being nimble to meet their learning goals.

The expansion of Fletcher Hall will create incredible classroom spaces and specialized labs in areas such as sales, data analytics, entrepreneurship, financial markets and more.

The building addition will enhance academic advising, professional development, career placement, mentoring, tutoring and support aggressive recruitment and retention goals. Currently, these services are limited simply because of space constraints. For instance, we can only accommodate ten employers at any given career fair. We have over 250 employers that recruit from our college.

An expanded Fletcher Hall will be an asset for UTC and our community. There will be dedicated space for a Regional Economic Development Research Center to focus on economic growth and development in the Chattanooga region.

With state-of-the-art space for existing and planned academic centers concentrated on economic growth and workforce development, we will also add learning spaces for executive education and certificates training in high-demand growth areas.

Help us make these goals a reality for our students.
