Aligning K-12, Postsecondary Education and Employers Tennessee Pathways create more early college and career experiences for students and ensure a student’s pathway is seamless from high school to college to career. Regional coordinators broker new partnerships among K-12, postsecondary and employers. This work is made possible through an interagency agreement between the Tennessee Department of Education and the College System of Tennessee. Currently, 122 certified Tennessee Pathways are available representing 39 school districts and 74 high schools. Certification is recognition that strong alignment exists between high school programs of study, postsecondary partners and employers. SAILS (Seamless Alignment and Integrated Learning Support) introduces college developmental curriculum to high school seniors who are not collegeready. The curriculum is a collaboration between high school teachers and college faculty and satisfies both high school standards and college competencies. In 2018-19, over 9,100 students completed the SAILS program.

High Impact Practices Leading the Nation on Taking HIPs to Scale The College System of Tennessee is the first system in the U.S. collecting student-level data on participation in High Impact Practices (HIPs). HIPs increase the probability of academic success, improve graduation rates and narrow achievement gaps between racial-ethnic groups. Employers value HIP experiences and skills because they indicate readiness and preparation for the job market. First-Year Seminar Students at CSCC Use Service Learning Project to Make a Difference Dual enrollment students in Cleveland State’s First-Year Seminar (FYS) class wanted to make sure their special needs classmates had an opportunity to experience the 2019 prom. The FYS students took a “divide and conquer” approach to pulling off an amazing experience for their classmates. Some raised money, while some garnered community support and donations for dresses and tuxedos. Others spearheaded communications with parents, teachers and students throughout the semester. On prom night, the guests of honor arrived in limos, were treated to a pre-prom Italian feast and were whisked away to experience the best prom night ever.

I learned a lot about myself from this project. I wanted to give back to others, not because they are special needs, but because they are human just like everyone else – they are my classmates. – Tekeya Smith First-Year Seminar Student

Certifications validate qualifications and skills through industry-recognized exams. First-Year Seminar/Experience courses, taken in the first or second semester, help students make a successful transition from high school to college. Honors Education courses offer deeper exploration of general education subjects for qualified students. Learning Communities place small groups of students together in two or more thematically-linked courses with added advising or tutoring support when needed. Service Learning embraces the idea that giving back through volunteer work with a community partner is good preparation for citizenship, work and life.

Our colleges integrate a wide-range of HIPs into their courses and curricula to make students more globally aware, solutionoriented and

Technology Enhanced Learning leverages ePortfolios, virtual reality, mobile apps and online gaming to facilitate learning. Undergraduate Research is a credit-bearing experience in which students seek answers to challenging questions through scholarly inquiry, market research and experimentation. Work-Based Learning provides employment experience through internships, practicums, clinicals, co-ops and more.

Inspiring Adults to Start and Finish College Launched in Fall 2018, the Tennessee Reconnect last-dollar scholarship provides tuition-free community college or technical college for independent adults who do not already have a college degree. The program has brought many students back to higher education, such as James Fry, who graduated from Chattanooga State with a 4.0 GPA in May 2018, and is now enrolled at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga where he is the UTC Retirees Association firstever scholarship recipient.

My Story...

Thirty-five years ago, I enrolled in college, but my father’s illness and other responsibilities were too much of a barrier, so I left school and never imagined returning. At my children’s graduations, I said, “if I could do it all over again, I would...,” and after attending the fourth and last graduation ceremony of my youngest daughter, I returned to college at the age of 51. With my family’s support, I began a life-changing journey that led to a renewed sense of purpose and pride. I worried if I could be a good student after so many years. I quickly discovered that Chattanooga State staff members are truly dedicated to the success of every student. The wraparound support of the Adult Services Center, tutors, Financial Aid and Admissions counselors and an excellent teaching staff, encouraged me to do my best.

Veterans & Military Support Raising the Bar from Military-Friendly to Military-Committed There are an estimated 169,474 veterans in Tennessee with no college credit, and another 157,179 veterans in Tennessee with some college credit or an associate degree. U.S. military personnel are among the best-trained workers in the world, and Tennessee’s community and technical colleges are committed to helping them make a smooth transition to higher education and the civilian workforce. Campus Services Provide Reinforcement Our colleges are devoted to creating a supportive environment that helps veterans successfully adapt to academic life. While services may vary from campus to campus, typical assistance includes:

What higher calling can we have than to help the men and women

• Help in understanding and certifying Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense education benefits • Single point of contact • Advising, mentoring and career exploration • Welcome centers, lounges or dedicated spaces for study, social engagement with other veterans, and academic support • Connections to student life through clubs and campus activities • Faculty and staff training programs to improve awareness of

who have served and protected our country make the transition to college and the civilian workforce. We honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans – and we are here to support them and their families. – Dr. Flora W. Tydings Chancellor

veteran-specific issues • Coordination of veteran services with external community and governmental agencies • Preparation for entry into the civilian workforce College Credit for Prior Military Experience To meet the needs of returning U.S. military veterans and reach the Drive to 55 goal of increasing the number of Tennesseans with a postsecondary degree or credential to 55 percent by 2025, our colleges are focused on improving the assessment of prior learning for military personnel returning to college. Prior learning assessment (PLA) examines a veteran’s military training and grants equivalent college credit for skill sets, knowledge and certifications acquired while in the service. PLA eliminates redundancy and accelerates time to graduation.

Completion & Equity Success for All Students All 13 community colleges in the state of Tennessee are official members of the Achieving the Dream (ATD) network, a national reform organization for student success created to help community colleges close equity gaps for students of color and low-income students and to assist all students achieve their goals for academic success and economic opportunity. Colleges work intensively in Achieving the Dream for three years, establishing

We needed to fundamentally change how we do business in order to better serve our students. ATD provided the necessary framework for us to do so.

ATD teams on their campuses who work closely with a leadership coach and a data coach from ATD. The coaches help them set and achieve goals related to student success. In addition to the coaches, the ATD network provides colleges with a platform for scaling up evidence-based effective practices and policies, a set of peers to share

knowledge, and other expert sources of innovation. “Our System shares the ATD vision of community colleges highly valued for preserving access and ensuring success for all

students, especially low-income students and students of color. We want to achieve that vision for Tennessee, and we understand the value and benefits of collaboration, so it made sense for us to establish a systemwide Achieving the Dream network,” Tydings said. All of Tennessee’s community colleges have developed action plans and are working toward increasing overall student success with a focus on closing equity gaps among their student populations.

Building a Culture of Evidence with Data Over the past six years, graduation rates from Tennessee community colleges have almost doubled. Of the almost 19,000 first-time, full-time freshmen who began at community colleges in Fall 2016, more than 25 percent had graduated within three years. Although graduation rates have risen across the system, gaps exist between graduation rates for white students compared to students of color. Among the 2016 cohort, the graduation rate for white students after three years was 29 percent, compared to 12 percent for black or African American students. Through our colleges’ work with Achieving the Dream, we are looking more closely at early indicators of student success, especially for students of color and low-income students, and ways to close the equity gap..

DATA MEASUREMENTS OF STUDENT SUCCESS INCLUDE: • Pass rates in high enrollment courses. • Responses to student engagement surveys. • Credits attempted and earned in a student’s first term and the first year. • Persistence to the second term and the second year. • Completion of key gateway courses that students typically take in their first year, like math and English classes.
