2013 .. 2014 .. 2015


Strategic Planning

It is more imperative than ever that Tennesseans have an opportunity to increase their level of education in order to bring about a better quality of life.  Furthermore, public higher education institutions must play an integral part in innovation, service, and outreach for the betterment and economic prosperity of Tennessee and its citizens, especially in times of deep fiscal and societal change.  With these realities as a framework, the 2010-2015 strategic plan, Charting the Course, will facilitate further progress in realizing the mission of the Tennessee Board of Regents. 

Charting the Course was developed around the idea that while each institution in the Tennessee Board of Regents must contribute to the overarching mission of the system, the board must also ensure that the unique culture and personality of each institution is allowed to flourish.  With this in mind, the plan centers around four key priorities that outline areas that are important to each of the institutions and also ensure that the system is progressing.  The four key priorities are Access, Student Success, Quality, and Resourcefulness and Efficiency.

Access

Anticipating high demand for post-secondary education, the TBR and its institutions will address capacity issues by promoting internal and external partnerships, using technology effectively, and optimizing the unique characteristics of its three types of institutions (universities, community colleges, and technology centers).

Student Success

Fostering greater success of students to persist and complete credentials and degrees enhances the viability of academic programs, the growth of existing businesses and the ability to attract new high paying industries to the state. Student success can be improved by continuing to work with Tennessee high schools through P-16 agreements and dual credit and dual enrollment programs; increasing student success in the areas of developmental studies, e-learning, and the Teaching Quality Initiative; fostering student engagement and persistence through effective support services, co-curricular activities, and faculty-guided research and mentoring; and optimizing new technologies to enhance teaching, research, service and learning.

Quality

Improving access and completion rates in higher education can improve the lives of Tennesseans only to the degree that students acquire and retain knowledge, skills and abilities they need to become productive employees and responsible citizens. System institutions will address pressing local and global needs by engaging in research, creative work and public service that advance knowledge and create new opportunities. To achieve excellence in all areas of our collective mission, we must provide high quality academic programs, faculty, services and facilities.

Resourcefulness and Efficiency

With the financial pressures facing Tennessee, increases in state funding over the next five years are unlikely.  As a result, achieving our vision will require additional financial resources that can be provided through: an increase in administrative, instructional, and operational efficiencies; an emphasis on private fund-raising to support institutional missions; development of financial support from external sources, such as federal, state, and local governments, foundations, and corporations.
