The University of Tennessee has struggled financially for several years. As state funding remains constant, and costs increase, maintaining solvency has been a daily struggle. Efficiency experts, hired by Dr. John Shumaker on his last day of employment at the University, have delivered a report that shows what they guarantee to be a path to a breakeven budget. According to the report, multiple inefficiencies exist that can easily be rectified by simply shutting down all student classes. Without the expense of students it is likely that state funding, outside contracts, and grant support would allow the University to pay salaries and knock down Historic buildings. University of Tennessee representatives could not be reached for comment.
