TSU Goes After Legislative Support
By Lavenia Chappel
From the ground breaking cancer research to the new developments within the engineering department, members of the Tennessee State University family on Feb. 1 presented information about its innovative programs at the 4th annual “TSU Day at the Capitol.”
The event was held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. and started with open displays and a continental breakfast.
President Glover started the event in 2014 after accepting her position in 2013. During the meet and greet day, each university department created a display table highlighting its academic work.. While learning about the diverse programs the University has to offer, students, faculty and staff members also had a chance to interact with legislators.
“TSU Day at the Capitol”, gives lawmakers the opportunity to see student achievements and discuss the priorities of the school. The event is open to the community giving everyone the chance to voice their opinions and learn about an HBCU firsthand.
Rated as one of the top universities in the country by Washington Monthly for its research, the day on the Hill allowed TSU representatives to brag about the school’s accomplishments. “TSU Day at the Capitol,” welcomed supporters, promoted growth within the student body and attracted community leaders while making everyone aware of the university’s need to continue to progress.
