TICUA Institutions are Crucial

Economic Drivers for their Regions 

TICUA member institutions produce a highly qualified workforce that recruits businesses and creates life-long residents of the region. Cleveland, Tennessee Mayor and Lee University alumnus Kevin Brooks shares how the university positively impacts his city.

“Lee University is not only a well-respected, highly accredited institution of higher education in our community, it is an economic driver for our city, county and region. 

Each year, Lee University graduates hundreds of degreed professionals, many of whom are recruited locally to well-paying jobs, who become homeowners and taxpayers and establish themselves as full-time residents of Cleveland, Tennessee. We are grateful for the tremendous help that Lee University has on workforce development and its economic impact here in our community.”
