When your student attends the University of Tennessee, the Office of New Student and Family Programs supports your whole family.

The Office of New Student and Family Programs, in partnership with the university community, fosters student success by engaging students and families in the Volunteer experience.

Our Mission: VOLS

  • Opportunities. Through various engaging programs, we provide inclusive opportunities for students and families to learn more about the university, get involved on campus, and identify campus resources.
  • Learning. We foster learning and development for student leaders, Parents Council members, and staff.
  • Support. Through programming and communications, we create a system of support for families to positively influence student success from orientation through graduation.
