NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Board of Regents says it plans to discuss colleges’ responses to the coronavirus pandemic and consider two dozen proposed career and technical education programs at its next meeting.
The board that governs Tennessee’s 13 community colleges and 27 colleges of applied technology said its spring meeting will be held Tuesday by conference call.
A news release Thursday said the meeting will include the announcement of outstanding students, faculty, staff and colleges of the year.
The board plans to discuss a report on the shift of classes and programs to an online environment for the remainder of the spring semester due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Also planned is consideration of 25 proposed career and technical education programs at 11 applied technology colleges.
The board also is expected to discuss a proposed revision to a policy regarding the duties of the chancellor. The proposal would add a provision to give the chancellor authority to act for the board in all matters during a declared state of emergency.
