Middle Tennessee State University was founded in 1911 as a Teacher's College. The International Education and Exchange Office is a vastly growing part of our campus. MTSU is now the oldest and largest public university in Middle Tennessee. Since 1911, MTSU has graduated more than 90,000 students. Despite the University's growth from a campus of 100 acres (0.40 km2), 125 students, and a faculty o...f 19, to an academic city of over 500 acres (2.0 km2), more than 26,000 students, and a faculty of over 900, the institution is still essentially a "people's university" with a concern for the diverse needs of the area that it serves.
