Gov. Bill Haslam today launched a new online, “competency-based” university he said will help expand access to college for Tennesseans. The governor was joined by Western Governors University President Robert W. Mendenhall as he signed a memorandum of understanding that officially establishes the university in partnership with WGU, a nonprofit online university created in 1997 by a group of western governors. “We think this is a significant day in the state of Tennessee,” Haslam said during the news conference.
