Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 15, 2017
Working at Tennessee State University as a research assistance helped me develop my research abilities. It exposed me to various areas of research and gave me the opportunity to work with highly intelligent and dedicated team.
TSU provided me with many opportunities to excel as a student. I am not confident that my skills were put to use in the most efficient way. However working with students at the University was a rewarding experience.
Coordinator of Clinics (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 6, 2017
I have mostly enjoyed my time at Tennessee State University. Employment in education is difficult and very time consuming. It can be rewarding, but the job is made more difficult if you do not have support from upper administration.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 3, 2017
Working at TSU is pretty good. We have Fridays off. Working as student at the university gets me a reduced tuition. Normally being a student and working is difficult to balance but at TSU it's pretty easy to keep it balanced.
Research Associate/GIS Manager (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – July 19, 2017
For support staff and non-faculty members, there are no clear paths to advancement. Most positions are basically stagnant. Staff member without terminal Degrees assigned into roles that do not leverage their expertise and passion.
Working load is too heavy, so it leaves little time to do research
Professor of Mathematics (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 9, 2017
Tennessee State University asks every faulty member to work 15 credit hours within which 3 hours are deductible, so everyone must teach 12 hours per week. Very little time is left for research. The Mathematical Sciences has very limited budget for teaching,and almost no budget for research. Besides, the Department is managed terribly poor.
The weather in Nashville, Tn, is so-so, not comparable with Florida, though.
Web Editor/Web Administrator (Former Employee) – Nashville-Davidson, TN – June 8, 2017
TSU has a small enough campus to feel "close knit." And large enough to feel progressive and growing. It continually strives to be innovative in its research and its academic programs.
I've learned so much at the university, from both a personal & professional perspective. The additional gains in web editing/administrator knowledge has given me a valuable skill set for today's high-technology centered marketplace.
TSU offers anyone who's willing to come in with an open mind and a giving spirit, to receive back ten-fold a most rewarding employment experience!
Great people, Great academic programs.
Great people. Some areas need better performance/funding administration.
