TBR Chancellor Removes Colleges from Haslam’s Outsourcing Plan

 Tennessee Board of Regents Chancellor John Morgan has removed, at least temporarily, the state’s 13 community colleges and 27 colleges of applied technology from Gov. Bill Haslam’s plan for the privatization of the management and operation of virtually all state-owned buildings, including college campuses.

And given the governor’s new plan to remove all six TBR state universities from the Board of Regents’ control and create their own governing boards, Morgan is also asking that the governor’s team running the outsourcing initiative work directly with the six universities to determine if it’s in their bests interests to participate.
