Who is UT MTAS? Good question!

Through MTAS, the towns and cities of Tennessee are supported by and have available experts dedicated solely to research, consulting, and training on Tennessee municipal issues.


What is the role of the MTAS RIC? Another good question!

The Research and Information Center (RIC) serves as a clearinghouse for information produced by and about cities. We are an information center which provides research, reference, and survey services. Surveys for MTAS consultants and city officials are conducted to create and collect unique information on municipal government not available from other sources.
