The Kingsport Alliance for Continued Learning (KACL), in partnership with East Tennessee State University at Kingsport, was established in 1993 to provide adults, regardless of educational background or age, opportunities to attend stimulating courses, lectures and special events. A volunteer board of directors manages KACL and board members often serve as instructors.  KACL greatly benefits from its ready access to ETSU and other regional faculty as they share their expertise in community outreach, as well as from talented local instructors with interesting topics.
