President's Message


One of the first community colleges in Tennessee, Cleveland State Community College has been part of the fabric of southeastern Tennessee for over 56 years. The College provides the students of our region with educational opportunities to learn, grow and thrive in preparation for the jobs of today and careers of tomorrow.  

The College also provides our regional businesses and industries with highly skilled workers that fuel our economy and contribute to our society. Through collaboration and cooperation, I look forward to helping our College and community reach new heights as we provide a world-class education to all students in our community.


Ray Brooks, Ed.D.
