Title VI

Title VI prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs that receive Federal financial assistance. A few years ago, the State of Tennessee strengthened the statewide compliance with this law.

Under this provision, all State employees shall be trained on the provisions of Title VI annually. While I would like to encourage all faculty and staff to participate in this training, per TBR directives, the training is mandatory for the following persons:

  • Deans/Department Heads/Chairs
  • Supervisors
  • AA/EEO/Title VI Coordinators
  • HR Directors and their Staff
  • All TBR Central Office employees
  • New employees at any institution or the Central Office
  • All campus federal program administrators.

University employees may go to and enter the password “titlesix” (all lowercase, no quotes).

This link, along with an explanation about the training and directions for completing the qui, have been added to the Affirmative Action Tutorials and On-Line Training webpage. Go to for additional information.

If you have any questions concerning this training, please contact the Affirmative Action Office at 678-2713.
