Be a hero. Finish your degree. Reconnect.


Southwest Tennessee Reconnect Community

The Southwest Tennessee Reconnect community is a locally-based organization dedicated to supporting every adult in the region who aspires to earn a college degree or credential. We work to ensure that each adult has access to the resources and supports they need to start and finish their college degree. This initiative is supported through Tennessee Reconnect, the state’s mission to help adults enter higher education to gain new skills and advance in the workplace.

Southwest Tennessee Reconnect is made up of community leaders, employers, and  higher education institutions, each focused on a plan to engage adults in the area.
