What is the Common Academic Experience?

The Common Academic Experience is a year-long discussion of issues, both in and out of class, around a central theme. 

The Pellissippi State students and staff have spoken and declared our theme for 2019 - 2022: Make A Difference!

We all have the ability to make a difference. Our individual actions, though seemingly small, can collectively add up to transform our lives. Whether it is through community service, citizen science, or civic engagement, we can change the world for the better.

There are so many opportunities to collaborate with others to tackle problems big and small - let's get to work!
