Tennessee State University President Outlines Her Vision for the Future

Glenda Glover, president of Tennessee State University, the historically Black educational institution in Nashville, recently unveiled her strategic plan for the future at the university’s recent Fall Institute. President Glover outlined her four main goals: increase four-year graduation rates; ensure campus health and safety; improve customer service; and sustain/diversify revenue streams.

Called Impact 20/20, the new strategic plan for Tennessee State also details the expansion of the campus’ physical footprint with the addition of two new academic buildings, Health Sciences and Engineering, along with two newly constructed residence halls to alleviate the growing need for housing. President Glover wants to increase enrollments by 5 percent by 2020.

“We’re here for the purpose of educating our students,” President Glover said. “There must be a continued commitment to make a contribution each day, to make TSU better. Each year when I stand before you, I have great news on the progress we’re making, but there is more work to be done.”
