Board of Regents to hold Strategic Plan Workshop Jan. 22, for update on 2015-25 Strategic Plan mid-cycle review

The Tennessee Board of Regents will hold a Strategic Plan Workshop with TBR staff on Jan. 22, 2021, in which board members can discuss the current mid-cycle review of the 2015-25 Strategic Plan for the College System of Tennessee.


The virtual workshop will convene online at 9 a.m. CT, Friday, Jan. 22, and is expected to end by 10:30 a.m. The session is public, and anyone interested in observing may contact Board Secretary Sonja Mason at or 615-366-3927 for log-in information.


The Board of Regents governs the College System of Tennessee – the state’s 13 Community Colleges and 27 Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology. The system’s current 10-year Strategic Plan, which runs through 2025, is undergoing a routine mid-cycle review – to assess progress toward the plan’s educational attainment and degree production goals, and consider potential revisions to the plan given changes since 2015.


The review is led by a Strategic Plan Steering Committee composed of board members and staff, campus representatives, and external agencies and partners. The steering committee’s findings and potential recommendations will go to the full Board of Regents for its consideration, possibly by the middle of this year. The workshop is an opportunity for board members not on the steering committee to discuss the status of the committee’s ongoing work in more detail.

The College System of Tennessee is the state’s largest public higher education system, with 13 community colleges, 27 colleges of applied technology and the online TN eCampus serving approximately 140,000 students. The system is governed by the Tennessee Board of Regents.
