Assistant Dean, Director of the Office of Graduate Admissions
Yvonne Kilpatrick currently serves, along with the other members of the UT Graduate Admissions team, to provide admission-related services to new applicants, returning students, and current students seeking to change their programs of study. Along with the Office of Graduate Admissions staff, she works in collaboration with the faculty and staff in the graduate academic programs and other university departments at UT to help facilitate the Graduate School application process for applicants.
Prior to coming to UT Knoxville, Kilpatrick served in two student services positions at UT Chattanooga. She coordinated admissions and advisement activities in the Physical Therapy program for twelve years and served as the Director of the Graduate School for five years before assuming her current role in the Office of Graduate Admissions in 2010 at UT. She is grateful for the opportunities UT has afforded her throughout her career to work, learn, play, and be part of a great community.
