C-N celebrates grand opening of Knoxville Education Center

Carson-Newman University faculty and staff join representatives from the city of Knoxville and the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce during a ribbon cutting ceremony at the University’s new Knoxville Education Center.

(August 7, 2019) KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Officials with Carson-Newman University, the city of Knoxville and the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce cut a ceremonial ribbon Wednesday in recognition of the grand opening of the new Carson-Newman Knoxville Education Center, located at 9261 Middlebrook Pike.

Classes begin this month at the new location, including graduate-level coursework in Business Administration, Applied Theology and Education for teacher licensure. Additional courses are slated in spring 2020.

This is such an exciting day for Carson-Newman, that we have a permanent home here in the Knoxville area,” said University President Charles A. Fowler, just prior to the ribbon cutting. “I believe it’s an exciting day for Knoxville and Knox County. There are going to be some great things happening right here on this campus.”

In addition to three classrooms, the building also features offices, a conference room and computer workstations for students’ use.

Founded in 1851, Carson-Newman is a Christian liberal arts university located in Jefferson City, Tennessee, among the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The University has over 2,500 students and offers 50 undergraduate majors, as well as associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees.
