University of Tennessee College of Law first-year student Johnelle Simpson has been appointed to serve as the student member on the UT Knoxville Advisory Board. Simpson’s term extends from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. He was recommended for the advisory board position by the provost, deans of the College of Graduate Studies and the College of Law, and the graduate student senate. The UT FOCUS Act, passed by the Tennessee General Assembly in April 2018, created an advisory board for each UT campus. The boards are charged with submitting recommendations to the UT System Board of Trustees on campus-level strategic plans, operating budgets and tuition.
