Dear Chattanooga State Community,

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the warmer temperatures of summer. Whether you are taking classes this summer or enjoying some time off this summer, I am happy you are part of the Chattanooga State community.

I want to draw your attention to the list of services we have to support you at Chattanooga State. That list is at the bottom of this communication. One of the services I encourage you to take advantage of our Career Services Center. The job market is rapidly changing, and making clear plans for your future career is of critical importance. Our Career Services staff can help you plan for a career you will love.

We are resilient. We are innovative. We are united. We are ChattState.

Rebecca Ashford, Ed.D.
