Tennessee State University Partners With Motlow State Community College

Tennessee State University, the historically Black educational institution in Nashville, has entered into a partnership agreement with Motlow State Community College based in Tullahoma, Tennessee.

Under the agreement, Tennessee State University will offer a bachelor’s degree program in agricultural sciences at the Fayetteville campus of Motlow State Community College. Students will earn an associate’s degree at Motlow State and then take two additional years of study at the Motlow State campus in order to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Instruction will be conducted by Tennessee State faculty who will travel to Fayetteville – about 80 miles south of Nashville – as well as conduct classes through online educational tools. Shannon Peters, executive director of community college initiatives at Tennessee State University, stated that “we make every effort for the students to see and interact with TSU professors, and to gain the same classroom experience they would if they were on TSU’s main campus.”

Motlow State Community College enrolls about 5,800 students. African Americans make up 9 percent of the student body.
