Access Key Priority

Improving opportunities for more Tennesseans to earn post-secondary credentials is a primary area of focus for the Tennessee Board of Regents system. Serving the needs of individual Tennesseans who wish to develop their professional skills and enrich their lives is also significant. Vital to those efforts will be addressing barrier issues such as affordability, preparedness and technology, as well as issues related to increasing participation levels of traditionally underserved populations.

Anticipating high demand for post-secondary education, the TBR and its institutions will address capacity issues by promoting internal and external partnerships, using technology effectively, and optimizing the unique characteristics of its three types of institutions (universities, community colleges, and technology centers).

Access Goals

  1. In order to increase access at all levels, the TBR system will expand the use of technology to increase and sustain access to post-secondary education and workforce development.
  2. In order to increase access at all levels, the TBR system will develop a methodology to utilize access and diversity resources to implement best practices for increasing participation levels of traditionally underserved populations.
