Speaking at a celebration of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's 131st birthday, UTC Chancellor Dr. Steve Angle outlined UTC's future as the institution fulfills its strategic plan's goals.

One of those goals--increased student involvement in internships--could impact businesses in the region. In coming years, every student in every major may be required to work an internship or have a similar real-world experience to round out of his or her education.

Delivering his annual State of the University Address, he touted "active, collaborative learning" as being at "the heart" of the UTC experience. In other words, bridges beyond the classroom.
