Advocacy & Accountability

Promoting increased graduation rates and postsecondary attainment cannot come without a better understanding of Tennessee’s higher education system. Complete Tennessee researches completion challenges, examines the equity gaps and collects data on the efficacy of the state’s higher education policies and practices. We also collaborate with state and local leaders in all 95 counties to encourage better understanding of the postsecondary landscape and share best practices that will promote greater student success. 

Each year, Complete Tennessee releases a report that includes county-level and institution-specific benchmarks. Download this report, and ongoing publications from our research agenda, below.
