The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is excited to host SECAC 2019 at the Chattanoogan Hotel from October 16-19, 2019. The Conference draws on Chattanooga’s rich history as a regional crossroads to fulfill SECAC’s mission of promoting inclusive dialogue and fostering compelling avenues of exchange.

All sessions will take place at the Chattanoogan Hotel, conveniently located in the heart of our lively downtown and steps away from many cafes, restaurants, and attractions. Centrally located in southeastern Tennessee, our “Scenic City” sits along the Tennessee River, tucked in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Chattanooga was twice named “Best Town Ever” by Outside Magazine and serves as a destination for adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts. Also coined “Gig City,” Chattanooga boasts the fastest internet in the nation, and the city prides itself on cultivating a spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation. The Hunter Museum of American Art, outdoor sculpture park Sculpture Fields, and a growing gallery scene also contribute to a burgeoning reputation for the arts in our city.
