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.

Most classes are held on the campus of ETSU at Kingsport Downtown located in the Kingsport Center for Higher Education (KCHE), 300 West Market Street, near the Justice Center. The exceptions are occasional field trips.

Classes are informal with no homework, grades or tests.  They offer the opportunity to indulge your intellectual curiosity, engage in discussion, and enjoy a congenial and cooperative setting among friends and neighbors. In-person and virtual class options are available.

Not familiar with KACL?  You may attend any one class free.  One free meeting is offered to anyone who has never attended KACL in the past.  Registration is still required; please phone the ETSU at Kingsport Downtown office at (423) 354-5200 to register.
