About Us

When your student attends the University of Tennessee, the Office of Family Programs is here to support your whole family.

The Office of Family Programs (OFP) believes that a student’s family or support system is essential to success, and we strive to educate and equip families to best support their student in all aspects of the Volunteer experience. We serve as a bridge between families and the university by providing special events, proactive communication, and advocacy to help shape the student experience at UT.
