Chattanooga State Community College, also known as Chattanooga State, is a public, comprehensive community college located in Chattanooga, Tennessee.[1] The college is a member of the Tennessee Board of Regents System and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).[1][2] Athletically, Chattanooga State is a member of Region VII of the NJCAA.

Chattanooga State offers a variety of programs and degrees including 50 career programs; three university parallel degrees (Associate of Science, Associate of Art, and Associate of Science in Teaching) with areas of emphasis in the arts, humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences; 20 technical certificate programs; corporate training; continuing education; adult education, including GED preparation; Collegiate High at Chattanooga State (formerly Middle College High School); Early College (dual enrollment); and community service programs.[1][3][4][5][6][7][8][1][9][10][1][11][3]

Chattanooga State is the only community college in Tennessee that has a Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) as an integral part of its organization.[12] The TCAT offers 21 diploma programs and 7 certificate programs with a combined annual enrollment of over 2,300 students.[4]

Total fall 2012 headcount enrollment, including the non-college credit providing TCAT, was 11,357.[13]

Chattanooga State functions as an open-entry postsecondary institution for students residing in six counties in Southeast Tennessee, as well as seven bordering counties of North Georgia and Northeast Alabama, including Bledsoe, Grundy, Hamilton, Marion, Rhea, and Sequatchie in Tennessee; Catoosa, Dade, Fannin, Murray, Walker, and Whitfield in Georgia; and Jackson in Alabama.[14]

Students who want to transfer to a four-year institution can go through the Tennessee Transfer Pathways program to transfer to other Tennessee Board of Regents institutions, the University of Tennessee (UT), and other Tennessee public universities.[15] Students can also enter the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) as juniors or get guaranteed acceptance to Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) under special agreements signed between Chattanooga State, UTC, and MTSU.[16][17]

The college offers instruction in a variety of modes including traditional classroom and laboratory instruction; asynchronous online instruction (more than 100 courses entirely online as well as many hybrid courses); synchronous instruction engaging students simultaneously at multiple sites; and one-to-one tutoring.[1][18][19][20]

History[edit]

In the early 1960s, the Tennessee State Board of Education began efforts to establish community colleges across the state as a result of post-World War II children entering higher education. In September 1965, Chattanooga State became Tennessee's first technical college and Southeast Tennessee's first public institution of higher education. It was originally known as Chattanooga State Technical Institute and was classified as a two-year, coeducational, college-level institution. The college was founded to offer technical programs with Associate in Science and Associate in Engineering degrees, primarily to meet industry needs and "to bridge the gap between engineers and craftsmen."[21]

In 1973, Chattanooga State Technical Institute became Chattanooga State Technical Community College. Specifics of Senate Bill 1010 mandated that the college provide comprehensive one and two-year occupational, college parallel, continuing education, and community service programs; offer quality technical and scientific occupational programs; and serve as a regional technical school to train engineering technicians or technical workers in the fields of production, distribution, and service.[21]

The college was under the State Board of Education until 1974 when it became part of the State Community College and University System, which was later renamed the Tennessee Board of Regents. With that administrative change the college identified the counties in its service area: Hamilton, Rhea, Bledsoe, Sequatchie, Marion, and Grundy counties in Tennessee and border counties in Georgia.[22]

In 1981, the State Area Vocational-Technical School, now known as the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT), entered into a pilot merger with Chattanooga State Technical Community College. Consequently the college added vocational education to its mission. In July 1983 the Tennessee legislature officially recognized the merger, creating a unique partnership between vocational and career programs. With this merger the college began offering one-year certificates in fields such as industrial electronics, automotive technology, and welding.[22]

In 2009, the college was renamed Chattanooga State Community College when Senate Bill 681 became law.[23]

Over the years, the college has collaborated with business and industry to achieve several milestones. In 2006 the college acquired the building and land which had been the world headquarters of the portrait photography company, Olan Mills, Inc., which added 59,000 square feet (5,500 m2) and 40 acres (160,000 m2) to the campus, and was renamed the Center for Business, Industry, and Health Professions.[24] The creation of the Volkswagen Academy in 2009 was a unique partnership between the college and Volkswagen - the only such training partnership in over 60 VW plants worldwide.[25][26] The establishment of the Business and Community Development Center in downtown Chattanooga provides customized support for start-up companies.[19][27]

The college has partnered with other cultural and educational organizations to offer collegiate education to particular populations. Hispanic immigrants are prepared for postsecondary study served by the Plaza Communitaria, a program in which the college partnered with the government of Mexico.[28] American displaced workers are served by the AHEAD program.[29] High school students can apply to the Middle College High School, a campus-based school offering both high school and collegiate studies.[22][30] High school students can also apply to the Early College program, which offers motivated and bright students a chance to finish high school faster and get into college sooner.[31]

Organization[edit]

Chattanooga State Community College is governed by the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system, consisting of 18 board members.[32] The President of Chattanooga State Community College, currently Dr. Jim Catanzaro, is the chief executive officer of the college and reports to the Chancellor of the Tennessee Board of Regents.[33]

Academics[edit]

Chattanooga State Community College has seven academic departments:[34]

  • Business and Information Technologies
  • Engineering Technology
  • Humanities and Fine Arts
  • Math and Sciences
  • Nursing and Allied Health
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Tennessee College of Applied Technology

Student Life[edit]

The Student Life department provides extra-curricular activities that address various interest groups on campus.[35] Activities, workshops, trips, and events provide students with leadership opportunities, social development, and interaction with various aspects of the campus culture. Students often refer to Chattanooga State as "Chatt State."

Athletics[edit]

Chattanooga State competes in Region VII of the National Junior College Athletic Association.[36] Intercollegiate athletics include baseball, men's and women's basketball, and fast pitch softball. Teams routinely compete for national championships. Scholarship opportunities enable qualified student athletes to pursue an education while representing Chattanooga State in a variety of sports. During the 2007 season all four head coaches received "Coach of the Year" conference honors.[37]

Baseball[edit]

During the 2009-2010 season the team competed in the NJCAA baseball world series.[38] Tiger baseball opened the 2010-2011 season with a Region 7 Tournament win and a trip to Grand Junction, Colorado as one of ten teams in the country to compete in the JUCO World Series. Tiger baseball has produced student athletes with awards both on the field and in the classroom.[36]

Coaching Staff: Greg Dennis - Head Coach, Joe Wingate - Assistant Coach, Coty Green - Pitching Coach, Trey Burstrom - Infield/Hitting Coach

Basketball[edit]

Chattanooga State's men's and women's basketball teams under the direction of Head Coach Jay Price have consistently received national recognition.[39] In 2010 Coach Price was named men's basketball coach of the year by the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association.[40] In 2011 both the men's and women's teams won the NJCAA Region 7 championships.[41] Tiger basketball gives students an avenue for pursuing their education at four-year colleges after two years at Chattanooga State.[36]

Softball[edit]

In 2012, Chattanooga State's Lady Tigers softball team won the NJCAA Division I national championship.[42] In 2010, eight Tiger softball players earned all conference academic honors and four team members earned All Academic NFCA Scholar honors.[36] The team won the regional tournament and went to the national tournament for the 16th time.[43] Head coach Beth Keylon-Randolph was former co-head coach of Team USA at the World University games.[44] The 2009 team was ranked #1 in April 2009 and finished the year ranked #4 with a 60-9 record.[45] The Lady Tigers softball team also gives players opportunities to receive athletic scholarships from four-year institutions across the country.[44]

Locations[edit]

There are seven official sites where classes are offered, four of which are in Chattanooga:[46]

  • the Main (Amnicola) Campus, including the new Wacker Institute;
