The Tennessee Temple University (TTU), which was founded in 1946, is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This four year private Christian university, which has a strong focus on liberal arts education, originated in the Tennessee Temple Schools founded by the Highland Park Baptist Church. Initially, it was a two year college and Bible school but over the years, it developed into a four-year college and seminary. University status was conferred on the institution in 1979.
Educational departments of the university include Bible, sign language, business studies, psychology and music. The athletic teams of TTU, which are known as the Crusaders, are part of the NCCAA and NAIA. Some of the alumni of TTU include Tommy Burnette (former House Majority leader, Tennessee House of Representatives) and Kevin Malone (former general manager, Los Angeles Dodgers).
