University recognized as among top tier for career preparedness

(JULY 30, 2020) JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. — Carson-Newman University is on the short list of institutions equipped with the experience and affordability to prepare students for their careers during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Educate To Career, a nonprofit organization focusing on educational attainment and career outcomes, named the University as a Tier 1 institution for the key metrics families need to consider in the current climate:

• economic value,

• ability to provide experienced instruction in person and through distance learning, and

• robust systems to support distance learning.

“Carson-Newman’s faculty and staff are devoted to seeing our students through these challenging times and helping them achieve their full potential,” University President Charles A. Fowler said. “This top-tier placement reflects the dedication that we as Christian educators have to meeting our students’ needs and preparing them for a brighter tomorrow.

The ranking assesses colleges’ abilities to graduate students at a reasonable total cost and get them into the labor market with high relative earnings.

“Students and their parents are extremely cautious about college value today,” ETC President Michael R. Havis said. “They want an affordable education that will put them on a pathway to a real career. Carson-Newman University has proven its ability to deliver a meaningful education, while keeping tuition affordable.”

Founded in 1851, Carson-Newman is a Christian liberal arts-based university affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention. The University is located in Jefferson City, Tennessee, among the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and has over 2,700 students. Carson-Newman offers 50 undergraduate majors, as well as associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees.
