NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee State University's accreditation has been put on probation for failing to show how it uses data to improve student outcomes.

News outlets report TSU President Glenda Glover on Thursday announced the probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

The probation stems from the organization's accreditation requirement that colleges document if students achieve program expectations and then use that data to improve student outcomes. TSU didn't have evidence it was doing that in each academic program.

The school has until June 2020 to the comply with the requirement. The school told The Tennessean on Monday that it is hiring a full-time employee to oversee accreditation and related assessments. It's unclear if the school received any warnings prior to the probation announcement.
