The Tennessee Inclusive Higher Education Alliance
The Tennessee Inclusive Higher Education Alliance is an alliance for the advancement of postsecondary education opportunities for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our mission is to increase the postsecondary educational opportunities for students on two and four-year college campuses and Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology.
Tennessee offers six Inclusive Higher Education (IHE) programs located in four-year universities and colleges across the state.
IHE Programs in Tennessee
Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT), formerly known as Tennessee Technology Center, includes 27 campuses across the state. The TCAT at Nashville has partnered with the Next Steps at Vanderbilt program to enroll students with intellectual disabilities who are interested in pursuing supplemental certificates in approved technical training areas. To determine if training opportunities like this exist in your area, contact LeAnn Blevins.
