Changing the status quo of the ad industry.

Shaping the talent our future demands.

Diversity in the fields of advertising and public relations—in Tennessee and across the country—does not reflect the wider society in which we live. The Tombras School of Advertising & Public Relations is committed to addressing this head-on.


Housed in the College of Communication and Information, the Tombras School of Advertising & Public Relations makes history as the first named school at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the first named school of advertising and public relations in the SEC and among all land-grant institutions in the country. The partnership of a leading academic institution with a world-class marketing agency yields unbridled opportunity.
