About Chattanooga State

President's Welcome

Dr. Catanzaro, President of Chattanooga State

Chattanooga State students love the support they receive from faculty and staff. They know we want them to succeed. Also, they understand that learning here isn’t drudgery. It’s fun! We give our students freedom to chart their own journey through college, always showing them the best pathways to a prosperous and successful career. Fully accredited, nationally recognized for excellence, led by our exceptional faculty and staff, Chattanooga State is the first choice of over 20,000 students each year. It’s also the first choice of over 100 employers seeking training for their workforce. I am proud to be the president of such a dynamic and powerful institution.
