TBR Mission and Vision
The Tennessee Board of Regents system is the primary vehicle for higher education access in Tennessee. Our vision is a Tennessee population and workforce with the knowledge and skills to be competitive in the world economy. The Regents system, both as a set of 46 individual institutions and as a collaborating and integrated system of education, seeks to raise the education and skill levels in Tennessee through quality programs and services, efficiently delivered.
The role of the Regents office is meeting the demands of the governor and legislature and also providing leadership that makes the contributions of the Regents system as a whole greater than the sum of its individual institutions. Through collaborative actions across the system we can provide more and higher quality services with greater efficiency for Tennessee.
