Nearly 500 faculty, students, administrators and staff from colleges and universities across the state participated in the College System of Tennessee’s We All Rise Biennial Conference on Equity and Completion Oct. 5 and 6, with a focus on improving college success and completion for all students.
The Biennial Conference on Equity and Completion began as the TBR Diversity Workshop in 2006. This event is the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive public higher education focused equity and diversity conference in the state. This convening of key administrators and staff from Tennessee’s locally governed universities and community and technical colleges provides participants the opportunity to learn from and network with state and national experts who work in the areas of equity and inclusion; faculty, staff and student engagement and inclusion; and increasing student success and completion rates.
