Due to data relevance, the dashboard does not report non-science and other sciences fields.

• Aspirational: Peers that possess similar institutional characteristics and have achieved performance on one more or more metrics that the university aspires to attain.
• SEC: The Southeastern Conference is an athletic conference. Only the University of Tennessee, Knoxville is compared to the SEC. More information regarding the SEC can be found here.
• LGI: Locally governed institutions are state universities that have their own governing boards. The Chattanooga and Martin campuses are compared with LGIs.
SystemFour UT campuses are included in this dashboard: University of Tennessee, Knoxville; University of Tennessee at Chattanooga; University of Tennessee at Martin; and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. University of Tennessee Southern data is not included in this dashboard because it does not report research expenditures on the National Science Foundation’s Higher Education Research and Development survey.
