ETSU to host regional summit on education, economy

Government, business, academic and community leaders from throughout the region will be on the East Tennessee State University campus on Wednesday and Thursday, May 27-28, for the Tennessee Valley Corridor (TVC) 2015 National Summit. Activities will take place in the D.P. Culp University Center.

“Education Fuels the TVC Economy” is the theme of this event, hosted by ETSU President Dr. Brian Noland in cooperation with U.S. Congressman Phil Roe.

The annual summit, which began in 1995, is designed to build relationships and collaborations among federal institutions, research universities, and science and technology leaders in the private sector.  It showcases the TVC’s quality of life and the people, business, and natural and scientific resources needed for high-tech research, development, business and investment in the 21st century.

“We are very fortunate in this region to have outstanding resources in science, technology and education,” Noland said.  “This summit not only allows us to look at the ways education impacts the economy, but also to explore new partnerships that will continue to improve the preparation and job opportunities for the workforce of tomorrow.”

The TVC is supported by the TVC Leadership Council, which includes Y-12 National Security Complex, Appalachian Regional Commission, ETSU, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tennessee Valley Authority, University of Tennessee, Alstom, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Oak Ridge Associated Universities, Tennessee Tech and UCOR.  TVC Summit sponsors include Eastman, Milligan College, Northeast State and Roane State community colleges, Tri-Cities Regional Airport, Mountain States Health Alliance, Cadre5, the chambers of commerce of Kingsport, Bristol and Johnson City-Jonesborough-Washington County, and more.
