Chancellor’s Professor Carol Tenopir was awarded the Top Citations by College, which, “Recognizes the individual with highest total number of citations by college or collegiate division.”

These awards recognize the hard work and dedication of SIS faculty to research and education.

“Congratulations to Chancellor’s Professor Suzie Allard on receiving the Research Spotlight Award and to Chancellor’s Professor Carol Tenopir for receiving the Top Citations by College Award at the inaugural UT Knoxville Research Awards Luncheon,” said CCI Dean Mike Wirth. “We are very proud of everything that Suzie and Carol have accomplished and are grateful for their ongoing dedication and leadership with respect to CCI’s research enterprise.”
