Greetings from The Vine Legacy (TVL)!

As a chartered affinity group of the Tennessee State University National Alumni Association (TSUNAA), our purpose simply stated is:  to assist our beloved TSU achieve her mission of nurturing students who Enter to Learn and producing alumni who Go Forth to Serve.  We are keenly aware that today's HBCUs are operating in extremely challenging environments.  Our beloved Alma Mater is not exempt, and your participation is critical to her survival.   The passage of the Tennessee FOCUS Act earlier this year heightens the importance for alumni of all eras to be actively engaged and informed as we transition to an independent governing board model. 

We invite you to join and support our efforts to serve TSU through programs and activities centered around building and sustaining a legacy of service through: Legacy Giving, Legacy Family, Legacy Outreach, and Legacy Connections.
