Carson-Newman to open Knoxville Education Center

(April 15, 2019) — Carson-Newman University’s reach will soon extend further into Knoxville with the purchase of a building on Middlebrook Pike that will serve as additional classroom space for dual enrollment and adult and graduate studies, a meeting space for online students and a location to house alumni events.

The University purchased the former Capital Bank building at 9261 Middlebrook Pike to transform it into the “Carson-Newman Knoxville Education Center.”

“This location near the center of Knoxville has excellent access and high visibility, making it a great marketing investment for our University,” said Interim President Paul Percy. “By utilizing that increased accessibility and visibility, we hope to bring increased enrollment. Moreover, we’ll be better equipped to serve our Knoxville-based alumni.

C-N will convert three of the building’s four units for University use. The unit that housed the original bank location is already furnished to fit some of the University’s needs, including two offices, a conference room and computer workstations. Two other units will transform into three classrooms for students in the Bachelor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration and RN-BSN programs.

Classes will begin in the new location in 2019.
