Center for Literacy, Education and Employment (CLEE)

The Center for Literacy, Education and Employment (CLEE) of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Tennessee was  founded in 1988. The Center's original charge was to link interdisciplinary efforts within the University with practitioners in the field of adult literacy. The Center has expanded through the years and today its mission is to support continuous improvement in the fields of education and workforce development through training, resources, advocacy and research.

We envision CLEE as an international leader in achieving and maintaining a future where all individuals have the knowledge, skills, and opportunities needed to flourish in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.

The Center for Literacy, Education and Employment external link works actively with other state and national organizations including the Boling Center for Developmental Disabilities particularly in the areas of self-determination and transition for students with disabilities as well as a support employment project, DRS Corporate Connections. CLEE also partners with federal and state agencies to improve universal access to employment for job seekers with disabilities. Innovative research, innovative professional development opportunities, use of cutting-edge technology, and the provision of thorough technical assistance have given the Center a respected position in its field.
