New Center in Jackson for UTM
UT Martin’s new Jackson Center, at 3031 U.S. 45 Bypass, will officially open on Oct. 4.
Only slightly over half of all U.S. students who start college will finish and not finishing costs both them and our nation in terms of lost income and in lower tax receipts for federal and state governments. For students who started in fall 2002 as full-time students seeking a bachelor’s degree but failed to graduate six years later, the cost to the nation was approximately $3.8 billion in lost income; $566 million in lost federal income taxes; and $164 million in lost state income taxes.
