The Upper Cumberland TN Reconnect Network is a local community organization dedicated to supporting every adult in the region who aspires to earn a college degree. We work to ensure that each adult has access to the resources and supports they need to start and finish their college degree. This initiative is supported through TN Reconnect, the state’s mission is to help adults enter higher education to gain new skills and advance in the workplace. The State’s Reconnect Community Network links communities like this one throughout Tennessee who are all working towards helping their adult residents pursue and complete their college goals.
The Upper Cumberland TN Reconnect Network also works in partnership with the Graduate! Network, a national non-profit, with a mission of increasing the number of adults completing college. The Upper Cumberland TN Reconnect Network initiative is based on the Graduate! Network’s collective impact model for improving outcomes for adult learners by engaging local community organizations to provide adults with advising, support, and a personalized path to and through college.
