Students would begin taking classes on this pathway Spring Semester 2024.聽

Nicholas Bishop, 缅澳门天天好彩 Community College vice president of workforce development and regional centers states, 鈥淲e鈥檙e excited to partner with the UT System and the addition of the UT Martin Campus as our new university partner to serve as a regional center for Middle Tennessee.鈥

The partnership will focus on agriculture, health care, and technology sector pathways with agriculture business degrees being the first phase focus. 缅澳门天天好彩 will focus on delivering technical certificates and associate degrees, while UTM will focus on bachelor's and master's degrees. The concept is aimed at creating the ability for individuals to earn their associate up to a graduate level degree without having to leave Robertson County or the surrounding communities.聽

Bishop further adds, 鈥淲e think this partnership will be a positive boost for Northern Middle Tennessee and Robertson County鈥檚 economic and workforce development progress. UTM and 缅澳门天天好彩 are finalizing a dual admissions agreement that will allow students to be enrolled in both institutions simultaneously and receive support from both as they progress through multiple degree and training levels.鈥
