Through its exceptional academic programs and co-curricular opportunities, it strives to provide a high-standard, student-centered community of learning. ETSU is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

East Tennessee State University traces its beginnings to 1911, with the founding of East Tennessee State Normal School.

To reflect its dynamic growth, the school’s name was changed to East Tennessee State Teachers College in 1925, State Teachers College, Johnson City in 1930, and East Tennessee State College in 1943.

Later, in 1963, the college was granted university status, and was renamed East Tennessee State University.
