Access and Diversity


We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.
- former President Jimmy Carter

Diversity celebrates our uniqueness as individuals. It affirms the individual strengths, gifts, personalities, challenges and differences each faculty, staff, and student brings to this institution. Pellissippi State embraces diversity both as an institutional goal and as an esteemed value of this institution.
