March 4, 2015 – Bryan College has agreed to serve as an optional “teach-out” college for the recent merger between the nearly 70-year-old Tennessee Temple University (TTU) in Chattanooga, Tenn., and Piedmont International University (PIU) in Winston-Salem, N.C. This merger will take place April 30, 2015, and Temple students who do not wish to continue their education at PIU will have the opportunity to complete their undergraduate degrees at Bryan College, or at Shorter University in Rome, Ga.
According to “Tennessee Temple University & Piedmont International University Merger: Key Questions & Answers,” the university is appreciative of its teach-out schools, Bryan and Shorter: “TTU students will be able to attend either college at a comparable cost and with an unaffected graduation date,” and the university is “deeply grateful to these institutions for graciously extending these opportunities to TTU students.”
Bryan College president Dr. Stephen D. Livesay said, “The majors that Bryan will assist with include Biology, Business, English, Psychology, and History. We hope to be able to serve those students who desire to take advantage of this opportunity. Tennessee Temple has a long history serving students through their schools equipping them to serve our Lord in many different vocations, and we wish to help them in whatever ways we are able.”
