TASSR Vision Statement
TASSR (Tennessee Association for Student Success and Retention) is committed to student advocacy. We will bring diverse voices together to share our expertise and to embrace innovations in education. Working collaboratively, TASSR seeks to be the leading voice of student success and retention for all stakeholders in higher education in the state and the Southeast.
TASSR Mission Statement
TASSR (Tennessee Association for Student Success and Retention) brings together college faculty, administrators, and academic support staff to achieve a common purpose: supporting students, regardless of preparation and life challenges, in pursuit of their educational goals. Through the annual statewide conference, the association journal, and regional events (TASSR on the Go), we provide members with opportunities to share their classroom practices, pedagogical theory, technological interventions, data, and success stories. We recognize and celebrate excellence through annual awards for outstanding faculty and students. Working collaboratively as a diverse and innovative group, TASSR advocates for education and the removal of barriers to achieving a college degree.
