TC named to Presidential Honor Roll for Community Service

The Corporation for National and Community Service has honored Tusculum College with a place on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for exemplary service efforts and service to America’s communities.

“Tusculum College is proud to have been recognized for the efforts that our staff, faculty and students put into the Civic Arts and community service projects,” said Tusculum College President Nancy B. Moody.
She added that service projects and service learning experiences are part of the core of Tusculum College’s mission that includes the Civic Arts and service to others as part of its overall mission.

Launched in 2006, the Community Service Honor Roll is the highest federal recognition a school can achieve for its commitment to service-learning and civic engagement. Honorees for the award were chosen based on a series of selection factors including scope and innovation of service projects, percentage of student participation in service activities, incentives for service and the extent to which the school offers academic service-learning courses.

Poverty, homelessness and hunger were among many of the issues addressed by the most recent group of students participating in service projects in the East Tennessee region. Students have worked with the George Clem Multicultural Association, Greeneville-Greene County Community Ministries, Greene County Habitat for Humanity, the Greeneville and Greene County school systems, the Boys and Girls Club, and the Mission Soup Kitchen at Tabernacle Presbyterian Church and many other groups.

Tusculum Signs Affiliation Agreement with LMU College of Medicine

Representatives of Tusculum College and Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine signed an affiliation agreement on Wednesday, April 20, opening the door for a seamless transfer for students majoring in selected academic programs at Tusculum College.

The agreement becomes effective immediately for students enrolled at Tusculum College.

“We are very pleased to announce this new partnership and affiliation agreement that offers Tusculum College students a seamless transition into the osteopathic medical college at LMU,” said Moody. “This affiliation agreement provides a pathway to launch our best and brightest students into a career as an osteopathic physician.”

The two colleges have been working out the details of the affiliation agreement for several months and have come up with a program that allows for Tusculum College undergraduate students who meet the guidelines to be given provisional acceptance into the LMU-DCOM.

Once recommended by Tusculum College, representatives of the program will interview the student in their junior year at Tusculum. Those who have a successful interview will be offered provisional acceptance into the program.
