Academic Policies


Name: Delivery of Services to International Students and Faculty


The Tennessee Board of Regents will support the unique needs of international students and

international faculty at TBR institutions.

Applies To Community Colleges; Colleges of Applied Technology



The Tennessee Board of Regents encourages its constituent institutions to receive international

students and faculty into their communities in order to strengthen and expand the global

academic market of ideas and knowledge. The TBR recognizes that international students and

and others which are ethical responsibilities.

In general, TBR institutions, which have international students, faculty, or academic staff, shall

provide trained personnel to deliver services required by law and not discriminate against any

international student, faculty, or academic staff member on the basis of national origin.
