Trevecca to offer classes in East-Tennessee city

A new way to earn a college degree within a Christian environment is now available for residents of southeastern Tennessee. On Friday, September 6, representatives of Trevecca met with members of the administration of Cleveland State Community College (CSCC), in Cleveland, Tenn., to sign an articulation agreement that will allow Trevecca to offer classes on the campus of CSCC.

This partnership will mean that graduates of CSCC can complete a bachelor’s degree through Trevecca without leaving the CSCC campus. Trevecca is now accepting applications for the first CSCC cohort in the Management and Human Relations (MHR) Program, a 13-month degree-completion program for adult learners. Plans call for the first MHR classes to be offered in early 2014.

Representing CSCC were the following: Dr. Carl Hite, president; Dr. Denise King, vice president of academic affairs; Ms. Sherra Witt, dean of Business and Technology; and Ms. Ann Cunningham, associate professor of computers and information systems.

Trevecca was represented by these administrators: Dr. Carol Maxson, associate provost, dean of academic affairs, and interim dean of the College of Lifelong Learning; Ms. Julie Rigsby, director of enrollment management for the College of Lifelong Learning ; Ms. Pam Costa, administrative manager for the College of Lifelong Learning; and Daniel Ammons, Trevecca site coordinator at CSCC.

Persons who live in the Cleveland-Chattanooga area of Tennessee and who are interested in completing their bachelor’s degree now can pursue that goal through Trevecca. They can contact Daniel Ammons at and at 423-544-4159. 

In addition to offering classes in Cleveland, Trevecca has also initiated other program offerings. The MHR Program will begin classes on the campus of Jackson State Community College in Jackson, Tenn., on October 3. On September 2, Trevecca began offering the Christian Ministry Program (CMO) in a completely online format. (This program was previously offered on campus in a face-to-face setting only.)  In the spring of 2014, the MHR Program will again be offered in a completely online format; MHR began its first online cohort earlier this spring.
