​Tennessee AHEAD


It is our hope that the information here on the site will be helpful, relevant, and current. There is no other organization like ours in the great state of Tennessee and we are proud to say that most colleges and universities in Tennessee, (public and private) are represented within our membership as are many of the technology centers. 

We have a terrific network of professionals who work hard every day to make college and university life accessible for students. While most of the professionals in our membership serve college or university disability offices directly, our membership also boasts deans, professors, and counselors, as well as others who serve in college or university executive leadership.  

In addition, TNAHEAD welcomes membership from those who are directly impacting either the postsecondary or the transition to postsecondary process for students with a variety of disabilities.  Members also receive access to our organization’s ListServ, a member rate for TNAHEAD events or conferences, and regular current updates on the latest news and information in our field from our Membership Chair. Our board meets regularly to conduct the business items you have entrusted to us.
