Tennessee State University An Economic Powerhouse
The year 2012 is a landmark for Tennessee State University (TSU). It marks the centennial year for this land-grant, historically Black, public institution. One
hundred years of service to a community which has experienced social, racial, and economic transformations merits special recognition. Through its academic programs, Tennessee State University has been a major producer of teachers and educational administrators in the mid-state region. Its nursing and health profession programs have been significant contributors to the area’s health care industry. Likewise, TSU’s agricultural research activities have impacted the industry both regionally as well as globally. In particular, the agricultural research station in McMinnville continues to keep the Tennessee nursery industry commercially competitive.
