THEI partners with local colleges and universities to offer quality courses in several disciplines that are taught by experienced Masters and/or Ph.D. level instructors. The majority of instruction is conducted in person at the prison facilities. All faculty are full-time or adjunct professors from Nashville State Community College in Middle Tennessee, or Dyersburg State Community College in West Tennessee.  Adjunct faculty have emanated from many local colleges and universities including Vanderbilt University, Lipscomb University, Belmont University, Tennessee State University, Middle Tennessee State University and Chattanooga State University.
