Tennessee State University

National Center for 'Smart' Technology Innovations


Tennessee State University established a National Center for SMART Technology Innovations in 2019. The purpose of National Center is to address educational and workforce challenges through the innovative development of ‘App’ technology. The Center will serve as home to several technology initiatives that seek to bring coding and creativity (known as C2) experiences to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and the Nashville community.


TSU will serve as the National Hub for training educators and preparing students by providing multiple pathways and opportunities to acquire essential digital literacies and technological new skills of coding and creativity. Apple is supporting TSU's HBCU C2 initiative with equipment, scholarships and professional development.
