Our Story

Our Past: Building a Solid Reputation
Since it first opened in 1970, Nashville State Community College has been a vital part of Nashville. Initially named Nashville State Technical Institute, the college had 398 students, and offered only five Associate’s degree programs. Graduation was held in the parking lot. White Bridge Road, where the main campus is still located, had only two lanes and very few businesses.

As the White Bridge Road area grew over the years, so did the college. In 1984, Nashville State joined the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system of state universities and community colleges. In 2002, the Tennessee General Assembly and the Governor expanded the mission of Nashville State to a comprehensive community college. As a community college, Nashville State offers the Associate of Applied Science technical and career degrees, and the Associate of Arts, the Associate of Fine Arts, the Associate of Science, and the Associate of Science in Teaching transfer degrees.

Our Present: Bringing Higher Education to Middle Tennessee
In order to better serve middle Tennessee, additional campus sites have been established. In Waverly, the Humphreys County Center of Higher Education serves students in Humphreys and surrounding counties. In Putnam County, Nashville State serves the upper Cumberland region at the Cookeville Higher Education Campus. In Nashville, the Southeast Campus provides learning opportunities for all of southeastern Davidson County. Students can also take classes in Dickson at the Renaissance Center. In Clarksville, a new campus recently opened its doors to educate residents in Montgomery County.

Our Future: Continuing to Serve Our Students
In the future, Nashville State will continue to build upon its solid reputation as a technical college. By expanding and adapting course and program offerings, and instructional delivery methods at all of its campus locations, Nashville State will stay in step with the educational needs and work force demands of Nashville and the surrounding middle Tennessee area.
