The Office of Policy and Strategy analyzes and develops policies to promote student success. Through research and policy analysis, we aim to understand TBR data and to turn that data into actionable information. This includes work about co-requisite remediation, Tennessee Promise and Reconnect, advising, dual enrollment, and the colleges of applied technology (TCATs). In this work, Policy and Strategy serves the efforts of Academic Affairs, Organizational Effectiveness, and Student Success.
The Center for Economic Research in Tennessee (CERT) completed the following study to better understand the economic and fiscal impacts the TBR institutions, its workers, students and graduates have on the State of Tennessee.
