Current Initiatives

Global Experience

This group is exploring the creation of an all-inclusive global research and learning hub for both faculty and students. The center’s leadership develops, facilitates, and supports study abroad opportunities, student and faculty exchanges, international teaching residencies, sustainable global partnerships, international recruiting, and new global degree programs. The Center for Global Experience identifies workforce and business development opportunities, encourages global entrepreneurship, provides cultural enrichment for students, and sparks a lifelong spirit of exploration. 

Task Force

Academic Community Engagement & Development Program

The Academic Community Engagement & Development (ACED) Committee will be a faculty-led and community-informed committee that identifies beneficial engagement topics and collaborative opportunities for K-12 and adult learners. Committee members will inventory existing Tennessee Tech academic community partnerships, programs, certificates, events, and offerings to identify gaps and evaluate existing engagement levels. ACED will evaluate community engagement topics and opportunities and encourage and support faculty involvement.
