Teaching and Training Resources

Faculty and staff are developing innovative approaches to teaching the principles of the True Blue Pledge and the MTSU Statement of Community Standards and Expectations, both in and out of the classroom. 

The following links will help you develop ideas for incorporating into your class materials related to the values of honesty and integrity, respect for diversity, involvement in the community, and non-violence and peaceful conflict resolution. These are also designed to be helpful to student organization advisors hoping to add these topics to their leadership training for students. 

If you have additional resources to add to this website, please forward those materials to Debra Sells at
