Engagement

Community engagement and investment is critical to promoting postsecondary access and completion. That’s why Complete Tennessee partners with county leaders across the state to better understand higher education and workforce data from the ground up.  Examining the challenges facing students and communities in different regions will allow Complete Tennessee to craft targeted strategies to help counties raise college achievement rates and meet local workforce demands.

STATE OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN TENNESSEE  |  2017 LISTENING TOUR

Complete Tennessee conducted a statewide listening tour to better understand the barriers facing current and future postsecondary students in the state. We hosted roundtable discussions in each of the state’s nine Economic Development Regions, inviting elected officials, community and business leaders, and education stakeholders to join in a conversation about postsecondary education.

The listening tour provided a chance to engage with regional stakeholders and community leaders who must play a critical role in raising Tennessee’s higher education attainment and completion levels. Each of the nine roundtable events sparked robust conversations on barriers to completion and opportunities to improve student outcomes.

Findings from the tour are highlighted in the report "Room To Grow: Regional Perspectives on Higher Education Improvement".

Read our blog  for more information on each listening tour roundtable.
