For students coming from a foster care situation or for those who have been living as independent minors or in homeless situations, it can be especially difficult simply because it is hard to know where to begin the journey or know who to turn to or trust. That is why Middle Tennessee State University, in conjunction with the Department of Children's Services, and the Tennessee Youth Advisory Council, created Next Step. Next Step provides additional support for our students coming from these difficult situations.
