Under the agreement, the Tennessee State University Footprint Collaborative will develop lifelong learning programs that include classes on civic education and duties, oral history, technology, and community gardening. Programs for seniors will begin in January.

Michael Harris, dean of the College of Public Service and Urban Affairs at Tennessee State University, stated that “our goal is to find ways to connect academic knowledge with community needs through programs that improve the quality of life for the aging population in Tennessee.”
