Our Commitment

As part of the STARS Network, Vanderbilt University recognizes our responsibility and commitment to rural students, families, and educators. Because of our location in Tennessee, a top five state for percentage of rural high school students, we are uniquely positioned to specifically work with these talented students who live in our own backyard. To elevate and empower rural populations, Vanderbilt will implement a comprehensive, integrated statewide outreach plan including on-the-ground outreach, programming on the Vanderbilt campus, and professional development opportunities for rural educators. We know that students who live in small town and rural areas play a unique role at Vanderbilt as we dare to grow!
