Thursday, September 4, 2014

The Chattanooga Sister City Association and The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will welcome a Russian delegation to the UTC campus on Monday. The group is interested in the Chattanooga renaissance—the way Chattanooga transformed itself from one of the dirtiest cities in the country to one of the most desirable places to live—all with the contributions of nonprofits, government entities, and private citizens. 

Chancellor Steve Angle and Dr. Michelle Deardorff, head of the Department Political Science, Public Administration and Nonprofit Management will welcome the delegation at 9 a.m. in the Raccoon Mountain Room of the UTC University Center.

The delegation will then engage in a presentation and round table discussion hosted by the UTC Political Science Club from 9:15-11 a.m. in the Raccoon Mountain Room of the UTC University Center.  UTC faculty and students will participate in the question and answer round table discussion.

A tour of campus will be held from 11 a.m. until noon, led by Chuck Cantrell, associate vice chancellor of Communication and Marketing.  It begins in the Raccoon Mountain Room.

A luncheon and round table discussion will be held from noon until 1:30 p.m. in the Cherokee Room of the UTC University Center.  Dr. Irina Khmelko, UC Foundation assistant professor, Political Science, Public Administration, and Nonprofit Management and vice president of the Chattanooga Sister City Association will serve as the facilitator. Faculty and delegates will exchange views and have a discussion on issues of mutual interest.
