History

Though it was organized as the Agricultural and Industrial State Normal School in 1909 and began serving students on June 19, 1912, its status was raised to a four-year teachers' college in 1922. It was then elevated to full-fledged land-grant university status by the Tennessee State Board of Education in 1958. Since 1972 it has been operated under the auspices of the Tennessee Board of Regents.

The present-day Tennessee State University exists as a result of the merger on July 1, 1979, of Tennessee State University and the former University of Tennessee at Nashville. This resulted in a downtown campus.

All the markets around town are booming these days. Industry has found it's way to Nashville and we are in an economic boom. Though some industry has been hit by the recession most are on on their way to full recovery.  Large firms are finding our cost of living and easy access by the many Interstates to put the final touches on their decisions to make a move to the south. Our people are eager and able to fill all your needs in whatever market you want to explore.

 “RUINED”

by Lynn Nottage

 

Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

 

A rain forest bar and brothel in the brutally war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo is the setting for Lynn Nottage’s much honored and acclaimed new play.  The establishment’s shrewd matriarch, Mama Nadi both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds between the government soldiers and rebel forces alike.  Ruined was developed through the author’s pilgrimage to Africa where countless interviews and interactions resulted in a portrait of the lives of the women and girls caught in this devastating and ongoing tragedy.
