About Tennessee Board of Regents
With its six universities, 13 community colleges, and 26 technology centers spread across the state, the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system is dedicated to the task of providing access to higher education to as many people as can be persuaded to pursue it. Simply put, their mission is educating Tennessee.
The TBR system offers an amazing array of educational opportunities with locations in 90 of Tennessee’s 95 counties, and even right in the living rooms of students if they choose to take classes online. Every year, over 180,000 students enroll in a Tennessee Board of Regents institution. And every year, almost 30,000 of them receive a degree, certificate, or diploma. They go on to earn more money, be more active in civic life, do more volunteer work, and live healthier and happier lives than people without education beyond high school. They also pay more taxes, need fewer public support services and form a better educated workforce that helps attract 21st century employers to make Tennessee more competitive in the global economy.
