Mission Statement

The Tennessee Higher Education Initiative provides access to quality post-secondary education in correctional facilities in Tennessee in order to help individuals lead productive lives in and outside of prison, reduce recidivism, and contribute to the security and wellbeing of our communities.

Description

The Tennessee Higher Education Initiative, or THEInitiative in Correction, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing access to degree-bearing higher education in correctional facilities in Tennessee by coordinating and overseeing on-site college courses whose credits can be applied to an associates or bachelor degree. Further, THEInitiative helps incarcerated students transition to the college campus upon release, and therefore operates on both sides of the bars. THEInitiative works in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Correction and various public colleges and universities in the state, like Nashville State Community College, in order to make these academic opportunities possible.
