Strayer University Brings New Campus to Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The University’s Chattanooga location will be its fifth campus in Tennessee, and will provide in-person support to busy adult learners who often juggle work and caring for family

Today, Strayer University hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to announce the grand opening of its new campus in Chattanooga, Tenn. The new campus will be the University’s fifth campus in Tennessee, and will provide programs that offer working adults flexible and affordable higher education options. Winter classes will begin January 2.

Located at 728 Market Street, the Chattanooga campus is right in the city center and is easily accessible for busy adults. The campus’s hybrid model will feature collaborative spaces for students to meet with peers and faculty and access student support resources, career development opportunities and one-on-one financial advising to empower students to succeed beyond the classroom.

“We’re excited to bring our 125+ years of experience providing higher education for working adult students to the local Chattanooga community,” said Dr. Michael Plater, President Emeritus of Strayer University. “Our new hybrid campus model offers students the best of online and in-person education. Students will now have access to programs designed to support their workforce preparedness, including resume building workshops and interview prep sessions.”

While nearly 90% of Strayer students take some or all classes online, the University found its students who live near a campus tend to complete their courses and continue into their next terms at higher rates than students who do not live near a campus.

Over the past two years, Strayer University has launched hybrid campuses across nine states so its students have better access to in-person support. The Chattanooga campus opening follows the recent relocation of the Nashville, Tenn., campus in July 2019. Additional campuses in Tennessee include one in Knoxville and two in Memphis. Strayer University has more than 75 campuses nationwide and enrolls more than 50,000 students.

Strayer University offers associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees, with a range of courses including criminal justice, business administration, education, information technology, and more.
