The business of collectively shaping minds and helping people find their place in the world may be measured in enrollment numbers, but it’s a product of collaboration that includes more people than can actually be counted.

For the third consecutive year, Motlow has the largest enrollment in its history. This increase bucks the national downward trend for enrollment at two-year colleges, as illustrated in a recent article in the Community College Journal, featuring Motlow and President Tunstill, whose gracious, mission-centric, and credit-sharing comments found substantial ink in the article’s third column. Based on the article, early indicators suggest that, nationwide, college enrollment continues to trend downward. By comparison, the piece reported that Tennessee community college enrollment is running counter to national declines and several institutions, like Motlow, are enjoying double digit enrollment increases. Presidents from Southwest Tennessee CC, Pellissippi State, and Motlow were quoted. Motlow’s 12.9 percent fall enrollment increase stood out among all the figures cited.
