About the chapter

Tennessee SSN brings together scholars from middle and east Tennessee, including members from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Vanderbilt University. Members currently focus on education policy, inequality, poverty, economic security, and U.S. foreign policy. As the membership expands, the chapter will continually refine its focus to address policy issues under debate in the state and nationally.
