Welcome to Walters State, the Great Smoky Mountains Community College. I’m honored to be a part of such an exceptional community college.
Walters State’s dedicated faculty and staff are focused on the success of our students. Our mission is to increase the number of individuals with a college degree and support economic development by providing affordable, high-quality educational and workforce training opportunities for the residents of East Tennessee. Consistently recognized nationally for the use of technology in the classroom, Walters State is committed to providing students with the tools necessary to achieve their academic and career goals.
On behalf of our governing board, faculty and staff, and our approximately 5,900 degree-seeking students, I invite you to explore our website and visit one of our four campuses to learn for yourself why Walters State is one of the premier community colleges in the country.
I look forward to seeing you on one of our campuses soon.
